OK, so I’ve only been pumping for just over a week now, but I’ve already noticed an issue with my infusion sets (MiniMed Quick-Sets) - specifically how they come loose after showering. My first set simply “jumped” off my body while drying off (I admit, I may have bumped it during my shower). But with my second one, I was careful not to touch, and to gently blot it dry. The edges still “pulled up.” As it air dried, I made sure to push it back down into place and upon drying, it fully adhered to my skin, no problems from there. My third set also tried to take a jump today. Again, I made sure not to bump, nudge or coax it to take the plunge. At this rate, I’ll be changing my insertion set every day, or I’ll have to factor in a “drying time” before I can move about.
I am using IV Prep prior to inserting. With they way they are treating me, I may have to use Tegaderm or something like that if I plan on swimming this summer (I do live in Hotlanta after all).
Any thoughts or suggestions you seasoned pumpers can provide?
