So for some reason it doesnt like sticking to my butt =\ I finally needed to try new rotations after keeping to my midsection since may so figured i would try that but since i have to tuck in my shirt for work it isnt very keen to wanna stay there ususally as soon as i try to tuck it in it wants to come off i wasted like 4 sets in 1 day because of this grrrrr. So now im trying my thigh though im known for bleeding there after taking shots i figured i would give it a try. The only issue was i had to grab my razor and shave there to get it to stick ( makes me feel like a woman) but so far it seems to be sticking good and the pain wasnt bad at all.

Hi Kim! I'm in Ontario too. I'm glad to hear this, because I'm just about to start with my Ping... as soon as I'm out of my first trimester.
Comment by kim on October 5, 2011 at 7:28am
jennifer, i think this is a US problem. i am in Ontario and never, ever have i had a problem with the # of sets i order. as i do not techinally have a "prescription" from my doctor, there is only the amount i ask for and am willing to pay. none of my pump supplies are paid for by insurance, as i get a grant from the Ontarion government for my pump and supplies. not sure where in Canada you are, but i order directly from Animas one day and receive my order by Purolator the next day.

I think one of the major problems is that they need to increase their staff at the call centers and on call pump support. I called tech at 4:50 today and waited 15 minutes for the message center. It is now 5:45 and I am still waiting for a call back from a pump support representative....good thing the issue is not major but still unacceptable. I remember back in the day having someone call me back within literally 3 minutes.

Pump supplies are prescription items. The are regulated - just like prescription meds. Animas rounding off and giving you more than the prescription requires is like the pharmacist giving you 50 tablets instead of the 48 the doctor ordered. It seems to me that they were told to stop being overly generous just because of their packaging.

Personally, I'm pleased that they're in the process of training more tech support people, and pleased to have been notified that they are having difficulties, are working on fixing it, and are sorry.

BTW I ordered supplies Friday and they arrived today. It's good to hear everyone's experiences, but our experiences aren't all the same.

Moss, I'm not accountable to give you a reply over what I think is a silly issue.
My statement goes to Kelly posting Sparlings letter and that is all.
I'm also not accountable for anything anyone does or doesnt think about Animas, as long as I have been truthful in what I have been dealing with.
that's all. Please give it a rest.
Comment by Jennifer Dharmasurya on October 4, 2011 at 11:26am
I'm confused about all of the talk of limitations on sets and meds. Maybe it's a Canada vs States thing. Or because I'm still waiting to start my pump and haven't had to deal with this yet.
Do other Canadian users have this same issue?
