need to know other places to give
If you are using/injecting enoxaparin twice a day you should be fine if you rotate the sites properly. You actually have a big area to choose from. After you have "used up" all appropriate sites by that time the first site will be ready to be used again.
I know it's not comfortable but unfortunately it needs to be done. All the best.
Subcutaneous Injection Technique: Patients should be lying down and Lovenox administered by deep SC injection. To avoid the loss of drug when using the 30 and 40 mg prefilled syringes, do not expel the air bubble from the syringe before the injection. Administration should be alternated between the left and right anterolateral and left and right posterolateral abdominal wall. The whole length of the needle should be introduced into a skin fold held between the thumb and forefinger; the skin fold should be held throughout the injection. To minimize bruising, do not rub the injection site after completion of the injection.
