Hey guys! I was reading a lot on this discussion forum today and got to wondering--how the heck do you guys wear your pods on your backs??
I rotate between my stomach and the back of both of my arms. Currently, about 1/3 of my stomach is out of commission as it is still healing from a nasty looking infection I had from a cannula recently. So I've been using the right half of my stomach and back of arms only.
I've tried wearing a pod on my thigh a couple times, but each time it only lasted....oh, about as long as it took me to stand up and try to go somewhere!
I wouldn't think that a pod site on your back would be very comfortable for sleeping and sitting. I'm a back/side sleeper and I also sit at a desk all day. I can see a pod on a back site coming off very easily as I stand up, sit down, get in and out of the car, etc.
Even when I wear my pod on my arm, I have to avoid laying on that side while I sleep. A.)It hurts if I bear weight on it and B.) the pod wiggles and comes loose and the cannula ends up coming out earlier than I need it to.
Also....I can't twist around that far to get a pod on back there! I guess my husband *could* help, but he's not always around for pod change time.
How do you guys do it??
