|Where I wear my pump, tubing & all.|
Wednesday, March 2, 2011
I've been a little worried about "real estate" lately. I talked about scar tissue with Allison a little bit, but I really should talk to the doctor about it, however I always forget about it because when I'm there I am always more concerned about the extreme highs/lows and my overall A1C. Asking about my scar tissue that's been there for at least ten years just isn't on the front burner when it comes to the questions I need to ask. Especially because my scar tissue is on my arms, and the thought of putting my pump site & tubing into my arms not only scares me, I think I would need to be a human pretzel to do it.
So I decided to try out my hip. If you're wondering; yes, directly under the seam of my jeans. It felt a little weird going in, but after I scratched around the site, I felt good to go. And I was. I was completely impressed with my numbers. Only occasionally did I feel it, when my pump was right over it, but I moved my pump and I was good to go. And then I went to bed. I tend to fall asleep on my side, and oh boy it hurt. Don't get me wrong, I did eventually fall asleep, but it took a lot of extra fidgeting and moving and rolling around to get to a place where I didn't feel the whole weight of me on my site. I managed it, and did so for the next few nights, but I haven't made up my mind yet. Awesome BGs = yay! Having extra trouble falling asleep at night = not so yay!
