Ladies and/or gentlemen if you know....having a mammogram tomorrow and it will be my first since having a CGM. I always disconnect my insulin pump before this exam and then reattach when done but wondering what is the best way to deal with the transmitter and sensor, etc for my CGM? Just protect with lead apron, remove the transmitter and sensor entirely and insert new one after the mammogram???
That sounds right. I have one and when my mom was alive she wanted me to go in with her but I told her my dilemma. So my sister went in with her instead.
Thanks so much...think I will remove it entirely and then just out new one in afterward to be safe.
I did call Medtronics and the help center said there were no statements specifically related to a mammogram, but they advise removing it (both the transmitter and sensor) rather than take a chance that a lead apron would work, etc. When I just had my pump the Mammogram Tech said I didn't need to take it off, but I said yes I wanted to just to be safe. I had a pump malfunction just from using a cell phone case that had a magnetic closure and it was a real mess.
