Patience. It took me about a week to begin to get comfortable when I started pumping, lots of finger sticks needed to adjust rates! About a month to figure most of it out - what worked, what did not work, and is it the pump or me that is weird!
Lots of time spent on the web looking at what solutions others have. And as Michelle said, always carry a spare battery with you!
Hi, I am in the same situation. Tomorrow I have my first training class to start to use my Minimed 723. I took my lessons on line 2 weeks ago. I am feeling very nervous and happy in the same time. But I think it is the best way to control my Diabetes.
I hope you are doing well and I wish everything it's going to be excellent.
