I was trying to share this in someone's discussion but it didn't send . So I hope this might help elsewhere.
I am new to the site and I have been pumping for 3 years, but I received a card with rotation instruction that I have adjusted a bit. SO here it goes. You select your areas and rotate clockwise around your body using each area in a triangle pattern that does not overlap. For example: I have four areas right now. My left ab, right ab, right flank, left flank. (in that order). Using this rotation schedule (changing every 3 days) I stay in a spot for 9 days but do not return for almost a month or more (imagine a triangle on your ab, where the tape does not overlap the insertion points...also when /i come back to the spot I can shift this triangle a bit to the right/left/up/down to avoid the insertion points I used the last time I was there). This gives each spot a decent amount of time to heal. If you increase your spots (thighs, hips...) you can increase the time between spots. Feel free to ask questions:)
Also for finger sticking. I use one finger a day. I found that I would always overuse my favorite fingers but it easy to remember the "finger of the day". I start on the lower side of the finger pad and continue in an arc pattern(up to 6). You dont return to a finger for a week (definitely enough time for healing).
Again. questions welcome!
I wanted to add that, I have been on the pump for 3 years but I have been diabetic for 27 years. I do not have any hard pads on my fingers and they look pretty darn good. I am not saying that I have done this religiously but it makes a huge difference. Especially since your fingers do heal and repair. You can reverse the damage
Your explanation is good.. but I am a littel lost on the site rotation. I read on a different post that you shared a picture about site rotation. can you please share it again.
Well I rotate my insertion to left and right side on my abs and on my back. But by the time I come back to the same place I dont remember where my last spot was.
