I just stopped using my Omnipod and got the Medtronic Minimed Revel/CGM... I put the CGM on my stomach, but dont really like it there...I'm not one to wear my infusion set for my pump there either. Do any of you wear them anywhere else??
Also, this is the first 3 days I've worn the sensor, and am concerned about the pain! I've been diabetic for 17 years, been on the pump for about 8 years, so pain doesnt bother me...But putting that needle in for the CGM sensor hurt so bad! The first one got stuck half way into my stomach, and I had to take it out and put a new one on in a different spot. Suck it up, I know...haha..Which I would have, if the pain would have gone away after I took the needle out..But it took almost 30 HOURS before I could even bend down or touch it. I made sure I didn't put it anywhere that would rub on my jeans, or be in the way of bending over too!
Now, no problem! Wearing the sensor and everything feels fine.. Maybe I just hit a bad spot?
Any suggestions would be of much help! I've left the Minimed educator in my area many messages to try and set up an appt. but so far, she hasn't called back.
