okay, so our son has been pumping since early october so we are still kind of new at this, but...
we have had 3 sites that went in wrong and were not working, a couple of sites that went bad because we had trouble reconnecting after a bath (quicksets) and 3 sites that got ripped out and changed before they would have needed changing otherwise.
but my question is can a site just go bad for no apparant reason? he was low actually at bedtime and had some snacks, which we bolused for. I went to check him before i went to bed and he was 13.4 (canadian, so a little higher than he is usually at that time). I thought this was a little odd given he was low earlier and so i waited another hour and checked again. This time 19! I did correct, but I was wondering what the possibility is that the site is bad given that there is nothing (to my knowlege) that could have made it go bad? (It was changed yesterday afternoon).
Also, In less than 2 months of pumping we have gone through almost an entire extra box of infusion sets, which is costly, so i was wondering how often you have 'bad' sites that need changing long before 3 days is up. Thanks.
