What are the best items used to tie off and stop migration?

Postby Rockmeathammer » Thu Jan 12, 2017 6:07 am

I've tried multiple household items including hair ties, pvc tubing, (think fish tank tubing) scarves, small dog collar, and bathrobe ties. So far the bathrobe ties are the most comfortable, but I still get migration into the abdomen. Regardless of how tight I tie off. I do also switch between a few different ones depending on how full I'm getting. The unwanted migration can be frustrating and sometimes uncomfortable because of how tight it can get. What does everyone use and have the best luck with?

For n2o a simple small peace of nylon rope:

With a tautline hitch knot, pictured here if you don't know how to tie it:

You are going to get migration as soon as you remove whatever you tie with. I'm not sure the effort (and discomfort) is worth it. But that's my opinion.

That said, I don't have migration problems either. I do get some into the pubis and surrounding areas, including the penis, but that's not bad. Kinda like it.

I'll second what Flexi says here. If you're doing a saline/dex/glucose infusion, unless you're looking to make sure you are completely stretched out the chafing and cutting into the skin you'll probably encounter probably aren't worth it.

I mention a comfy strap here http://forums.newart.com/phpbb/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=47257 that I've used a couple times and it worked, minimizing the discomfort I mentioned but as soon as I took it off the saline started flowing back up...

N20 is something else entirely and you'll need to tie off tightly, I'll second JDDILL's comment for that :)

I mainly get it in the pubic area/lower abdomen too, Which I don't mind when I'm all finished up, We all know to expect it, but for some reason each infusion breeds different results for me. The issue I occasionally run into is an early migration while infusing. Once it starts it is difficult to stop, and ends up making the entire time troublesome. I'm pretty thin, actually really thin, so the tightness there kind of sucks as I don't have the room to store it.
Am I correct to think that with dextrose causing a draw of lymphatic fluid into the sac for an extended period of time, migration should be reduced considerably? Again, it's only during infusion and shortly after that the migration is bothersome.

Thanks 5Lsal. That's what looking for. And I agree, the discomfort that comes with tieing off can be quite bothersome depending on what your using and how long it's been since it's been adjusted.

Another good idea. Don't know why I didn't think of that, I've used tautline knots my whole life. Thank you.

Inflationfetish does the best job tying off that I've seen.

viewtopic.php?f=9&t=47126

Uses a small tube, inside a larger tube, with barrel clips or something similar.

I think the only answer is to sleep in a chair because leaving the tie off for too long may actually cause bigger problems!
I've seen how farmers dock sheep tails ;-)
