Reservoir and needles

Postby Opie52 » Thu Feb 07, 2019 2:51 pm

It never crossed my mind but do you characters think it’s possible to puncture a reservoir with an insulin needle?

I think it is unlikely, but I do try to avoid the side where my reservoir is. Some surgeons place the reservoir deeper than others. You should ask your surgeon to be sure.

What you find out from respondents here may not apply to your physical situation.

(My) Subcutaneous needles are fairly short and my insulin is supposed to be injected into fatty tissue close under the skin, not deep. But better safe than sorry.

From what I know about insulin injections (I was married to a diabetic for 22 years), there is NO WAY the needle should be long enough to go anywhere near the reservoir.

Why would you want to stick an insulin needle into your penis?

Not the penis.

The abdomen is where most subcutaneous insulin injections are done.

The reservoir is generally in the abdomen.

Yeah, but insulin injections are done with 5/8 inch needle (or threabouts) and sub-q. The resevoir is nowhere near the skin surface: it's up in your bladder cavity.

My bad, I was thinking of the tubes/cylinders in the penis. Very aware of injection into the abdomen, been diabetic for over 24 years and on the pump since 98. Just my ignorance.
