I recently received my Animas Ping and have not gotten trained on how to use it yet. This will be the second pump I have had (the first was a Minimed Paradigm) and I have not been on the pump for several years.
Since my decision to start pumping again, I have had a friend of mine who is a seamstress alter some of my pump-unfriendly clothes because one of my biggest issues with pumping was not having the freedom to wear what I want without extensive planning or being uncomfortable.
My friend's solution to some of my clothes issues was to put a buttonhole on the inside of one of the pockets so that the tubing is completely concealed by slipping it through the hole. This is going to be great for higher-waisted pants and pants with oddly placed or shaped pockets. (I used to have a lot of problems with tubing getting caught on things and I am not one of those lucky people who are super comfortable letting the whole world see evidence that they have a diabetes.)
This may not make a lot of sense but what I need to know is: What is the tubing-connecting device like for the Animas Inset brand? Mainly I am interested in the size of the plastic that comes on and off the insertion site on your skin. Also, is the plastic hard or flexible?
Any help is greatly appreciated.
