so i'm doing the saline trial for the animas 2020 pump.
the first infusion set was on my stomach, but after a day, it wasn't comfortable. the rep even said after i had put it in that i would probably find i wanna change it from that site and to practice as often as i want taking the infusion site out and putting a fresh on into a different spot.
so last night i moved it to my back, on the right side. it felt a LOT better and was so much less noticable. i thought it would be great!
at lunch i was showing my friend how it works and did a bolous of 3.35units of saline...and it STUNG going in. the infusion site area hurt for a good few minutes and when the saline was going in..it hurt so much my friend actually cringed and went "OH GOD it's hurting you!" because i went "GAAAAAAAH" and my hand flew back to the site and i made a face.
is that common for the pump depending on the site, or could it just be the saline?
it happened yesterday too when i was playing with the carb counting stuff and punched in 8units. hurt SO much, but it more hurt cuz it was cold. today it hurt cuz it STUNG!
it's freaking me out.
also...the tubing is kinda getting in the way since the pump is so close to the site(on my belt). do you guys just use medical tape to keep it from poking out from under your shirt?
