I had pain with the last inset and it got worse today. When I changed it with the pump reminder and as I pulled it off there was a big drop of insulin sitting there, it was so odd, when I totally pulled it out blood came out. But my bg wasn't high. Although I had a post low spike, maybe, which kept me up all night trying to lower it after a really good day and a half or so, and I wonder if I wasn't really getting enough with all the pump corrections to bring it down?
The odd thing was I had a cannula bent at a right angle which absolutely gushed blood when I removed it and my bg was spiking up so no insulin was getitng in then, but I had no pain with that. While this site looked definitely irritated.Yesterday I actually noticed pain right after boluses for meals, which are much larger than my basal doses.
I'm wondering if I'm going to need to change insets. This is so stressful dealing with all of this but at least my bg didn't go up this time- I just wonder why since it looked like at least 2 units didn't get into me maybe?
If you have any pain after inserting a new inset do you change it right away? I'm just wondering if it would be a good idea to change it right away. I will be asking my cde/doc also of course, but I'm wondering if any of you have had this issue and how you resolved it?
