Hi, Gang -- I've had my Dex for about three weeks now, and need some help when it comes to insertion, site rotation, and ... well ... pain.
First of all, that's some big needle! I made the mistake of putting it in my belly right at the exact point where the kitchen sink hits it when I'm standing there. Since that's a place I stand a lot, it got very sore and bruised. Had to switch before the week was up.
This morning I put it in my left hip. This location really hurts as well. Don't know if my pants are rubbing against it, but there doesn't appear to be a seam there, so who knows what the problem is.
1) What sites do you find as the most comfortable?
2) Does anyone use any kind of skin prep or numbing agent?
3) What method do you follow for site rotation of your Dex and your pump?
Thanks so much for your help!
