You will bruise more easily anyway, nothing to do with not enough fat. I have had to do bridge twice, and the needles are huge and bruise you easily in the stomach. And then on my last time, I turned around weeks later, on insulin for me diabetes and shots in the stomach, but with short needles, less chance of big bruises. But I will never get away from needles, have had shots and blood draws since ai was a kid, got worse when I became type 2 diabetic after second bypass surgery and genetics. Hopefully soon, the bruises will be gone.I had massive bruising trying to bridge. Was absolute torture. Not enough fat I guess. Entire abdomen became blood red/black/purple. Was so shocking looking that even the cardio crew remarked about it during my stent procedure. Not wanting to go through it again...
