I started using OmniPod about a month ago and while I love the convenience of it I am not having much luck with sites. I’ve worn them on my arms, legs, and stomach and the majority of the sites tend to be uncomfortable. There always seems to be a slight pain/dull ache all the time and when I go to bolus even small amounts I get a bad stinging at the site. Every time I move I can feel it and it’s so uncomfortable. Also every time I take it off there’s a painful lump where the site was that’s usually sore for a couple days after. A lot of the time the site gets too sore and I have to take the pod off early.
I put a pod on my arm recently and it felt great, no pain or stinging when bolusing (I was so excited and in disbelief that it wasn’t sore lol) for a day then started to hurt and sting again around day 2.
Any thoughts on why I seem to be having so much pain at every site and what could be causing the stinging when bolusing? I go back to see my endo in 2 weeks so I’ll talk to them then but wanted to know if anyone had any advice in the meantime.
