So i used my stomach for sets for like 2-3 months and recently got it working in my thigh area... im curious on the waiting time before i can go back to my midsection?? or rather where my insulin will absorb like it should

I put two coats on, drying after each swipe. In almost six years of pumping I have lost only a couple sets.

My pump came today!

I found that the IV300 dressing helped secure the site to weird locations. Also a HUGE difference was made when I would wait for the IV Skin prep to DRY before putting the site on. it's like putting glue on the two opposing sides and waiting for it to dry before adhering them to one another. Something in the bonding process.

I have skin prep seems to work alot better then iv prep

Andrew, do you use the IV Skin Prep or some other tacky stuff?

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.
