So I've been on the pump (Animas 1250) now for 4 years and I've noticed the skin hardening under where I've been infusing. I would say that I'm in pretty good shape and that I keep my girlish figure rather well, but my infusion sites (either side of my abdomen) have hard tissue built up under them seemingly and appear as mini love handles haha.
I just wanted to know if anyone else has or has had this issue. I know the obvious solution is to change my infusion site, but I'm also male and have body hair and the adhesive doesn't much care for body hair...I can't really try other sites like my leg or ass because both sweat and get landed on/stepped on during rugby.
I tried a spot higher up closer to my ribs and around the back, but that was just uncomfortable and fell out due to sweat.
Please tell me I'm not alone in my struggles! :)
