I've had diabetes for nearly 14 years. For almost 13 years I have been using tubed pumps (Medtronic Minimed for the last 8). I had very positive experiences with my pumps. But, the idea of having a pump that didn't have to be disconnected for showers and swimming was very appealing. I once took my Minimed into a pool with me. It didn't like that very much (I had a replacement pump within about 18 hours). I also liked the idea of having no tubing to deal with.
So, I got my training last night and started pumping with my Pod. I felt like I already had experience with it just from reading discussions here. I was not sure what to expect with the automatic insertion. I barely felt anything! Much better than manually inserting my old sets. I'm looking forward to trying it on my arms and back, and possibly my legs.
Thanks to everyone who has asked and answered questions on this forum! I know that if I have any questions/problems there will be no shortage of answers and advice from all of you! So far I'm very happy to be a part of the OmniPod community!
