I've been pumping a little over a year. I have use my abdomen, buttocks, and thighs.
I use my back (the fatty parts at the sides away from the spine) and the backs of my arms. These places are easily reached with the animas infusion sets as you can do it one handed! You can also use your butt and thighs as already suggested :) Hope this helps!
I use my thighs, being careful to avoid placement under the seams of my jeans. I put the inset in so the tubing is going down my leg and put the pump on my lower leg using a sweat band to cushion it, and a more elastic type band to keep it in place. Also, I've stopped putting my jeans through the dryer to make them a bit looser through the leg area.
My upper arm is reserved for my CGM. It seems to be way more accurate than other areas, including my abdomen.
I use stomach, upper legs, rear and sometimes continue around my stomach to my back, at least where I can reach. When I was on Omnipod I used my upper arms, but didn't care for it, now that I am back on Animas Ping I don't use the arms at all.
Hope this helps.
Use the top part sort of just bellow your waistband. I tried using it but found that the absorption in both arms and butt was pretty bad but might be different for you!
I find the absorption is really good using my legs, but I do a lot of walking.
I use my love handle area and hips, anywhere I can get a decent pinch I figure is a safe place.
i find that most of my boluses sting. i like to lightly massage the area around my infusion set when giving it, and then i dont feel a thing.. I usually try to get 3-4 days out of one set and this really has been making my life easier. I dont feel the basal rate though, i dont think you should notice that.
