Today, after my pump failure last weekend, I went back on the pump. After my previous episode in September I decided not to connect myself until the weekend to allow myself “room” for any highs or lows tied to going back on it.
I am starting to see more and more often that my Quick-serter (the spring mechanism that pushes the infusion set’s canula with the needle inside the infusion site) seems to be malfunctioning. When I press both buttons, it starts going in at “full speed” but halfway in, it sort of slows down and goes very slow which leaves the canula halfway in and requires me to push the thing in manually the last bit.
Needless to say this can be a bit painful most of the times. I was wondering if anyone else has seen this happen and if so, what did you do. Before spending the $25 plus s/h on the Minimed store for a new Quick-serter, I wanted to check… who knows? Maybe someone else has a spare one?
