I replaced my Dexcom G6 sensor today… but not without some unexpected excitement!
I inserted the sensor as usual, then snapped in the transmitter as usual. I opened the Dexcom app on my iPhone… but instead of the usual “New sensor” button, I saw “I have a new transmitter.” I then remembered that the system had been warning me that my transmitter was going to expire soon, but (A) I thought I had one more session left, and/or (2) I forgot!
So here I am with the old transmitter in place. To remove it according to the approved procedure, I’d have to remove the sensor as well, putting me 10 days behind schedule on sensor supplies.
But fortunately I’ve been a faithful reader of this forum and others, and I realized there might be a better way. So I dug out a couple thin credit cards… and sure enough, I was able to pop the old transmitter out pretty easily! which surprised me, as I hadn’t done that before. I popped in the new one, and all was well.
Thanks to all of you who have posted directions for this!
