I had to remove my G5 Transmitter when I had a MRI. Not a big deal.
Well the MRI showed I had a bone infection in my foot. (Poor blood circulation). Next step is to try to cure the bone infection with HBO (Hyperbaric Oxygen Therapy. With HBO, I have to breath 100% Oxygen in a pressurized chamber every day, for 90 minutes, for 30-40 days.
Like the MRI, I have to remove my transmitter when I lie inside the chamber. After, I had hoped I could restart my CGM when I put the G5 transmitter back in. It seems like every time you remove the transmitter you have wait 2 hours for the sensor. Anybody know if this is correct or if there is a way to bypass the 2 hour wait period?
2nd Separate Question. I use the Xdrip Application with my Dexcom G5. I am trying to reset the Transmitter days to zero to get a few extra days, maybe 40, out of my transmitter. My G5 transmitter is currently at 102 days. I tried “Enable Engineering Mode” and then “Hand Reset Transmitter” but it does not reset my transmitter days in the System Status. Anyone know what I am doing wrong?
