Hi, I’m new here. I’ve been reading posts for a week or so and it seems like a great place.
I hope to be starting pump therapy soon, which means I need to pick a pump. As of right now, the oPod is the front runner. I had a question though, and hopefully you can help.
I understand that the pods are one time use only, and that if the cannula comes out, that the pod is garbage. What about the insulin inside?? Is there anyway to get that out or is the whole thing a total loss?
I had a demo pod and wore it for a day or so, and the cloth/gause stuff that it’s attached too ripped a bit around where the cannula would go. I wasn’t pumping saline or anything, but it just seemed like it was deflecting far enough from my body for it (the cannula) to have fallen out. I quess what it all boils down to is anxiety about picking the wrong pump when there’s so much money involved.
Any insight that anyone could provide would be greatly appreciated.
