I removed my sensor today after getting a failed sensor reading. When I removed it, it looks like the tip of the wire may have broken off inside of me. The wire thingy is a lot smaller than usual. Has anyone had this happen? I am very worried…
I wouldn’t be worried. That sensor wire is pretty inert and eventually will work its way to the surface. However, you should call Dexcom to get their opinion on this.
I agree with Kevin… call Dexcom tech support.
I would call Dexcom tech support. But I might also ask my own doctor. I mean, if you have a splinter, you have to remove it so I would think you should remove the wire.
