Well, it finally happened. I’ve been using CGMS for 3 years now, and on numerous occasions, I’d gotten the sensor/transmitter painfully hooked on a seat belt, such that I was sometimes loathe to even put one on, but yesterday, in the course of slamming on the brakes (long story), my seatbelt ripped my sensor right out, painful and bloody.
Anyone else experience this? I’d be unsurprised to get some disagreement from folks who have not repeatedly experienced painful hookups (maybe it’s the shape of my belly), but it seems to me like abdomen sensor and pump infusion sites are not really seat belt compatible, and injuring yourself repeatedly for the ostensible purpose of reducing injury is nonsensical. No more seat belt for me.
