Anyone ever have any issues with injecting dorsogluteal and ventrogluteal within a day of each other because of proximity?
There is absolutely no time you would ever need to - so no, because i don’t.
I would simply rotate my injections logically… so there would be a site or two sites inbetween those two sites.
But if it was ABSOLUTELY necessary (simply because you do not possess legs or an upper body - you are just hips, arse and a head - all connected with a wire and plugged into the wall socket) then you would inject LHS glute, RHS glute, LHS VG, RHS VG - this alone would give you two days (or one FULL day depending if you count in a strange way) between the shots that are close together.
Either way - just shoot your delts, biceps, quads, traps or lats inbetween. (I left out tricep as it is a horrible site)
The question was out of curiosity, not necessity. Given that the dorsogluteal injection is depositing the bolus into the gluteus maximus, and ventrogluteal -> gluteus medius, it seemed likely that shooting both those sites within a close time frame would not lead to any higher incidence of scar tissue build up (similar to Bill’s usage of multiple sites along the vastus lateralis).
Assuming there’s no increased risk of scar tissue buildup, and assuming it doesn’t produce extreme discomfort (save for those whose preparations are painful regardless), I’m not sure why shooting these two sites sequentially would be “illogical”, even if it isn’t necessary.
But that’s a lot of assumptions, and thus the question…[/quote]
Sorry, I should have specified that I do not shoot them within one day of each other, but often do shoot those sites within two days of each other (RVG, LVG, RDG, LDG). As Brook says above, I cannot see any reason why a person would need to shoot them within a single day of each other. I sometimes shoot within two days just because I know my body and how it handles injections well enough at this point that I can feel when I am “ready” to receive one. Occasionally I do not feel ready and I will opt for a different site that day.
