Bad Infusion Set Site

Other than location, is there a bad place to insert an infusion set? Such as a scar, stretch mark etc??

A few years ago I got really sick (too much of a back story to go into now) and retained more than 80lbs in water weight for almost two months. I now have some stretch marks on my abdomen…will this be an issue with infusion sets?


Me personally, I avoid spot where there isn’t a little cushion underneath. If is skin and then muscle it is going to hurt if you use a quickset and or the cannula will get kinked. Scar tissue does not sound like a good choice IMO.

Thanks Dave,

You are right, I knew that was the answer…but I guess I was just wishful thinking. Hoping to have more options for sites.
