I'm on my third pod in 5 days - I'm getting really frustrated. Changed out two because of blood (and now big bruises) and one because I tore it off walking into a cabinet...ugh! The bloody ones were in places that I've put my Ping infusion sets in many times with no issues. The bruise I now have on my lower back is hard and swollen. I don't want to go back to a tubed pump, but I'm getting really tired of this pod right now. I'm half tempted to go back to MDIs....I am so sick of this disease!
I little bit, I leave alone. The last two had the blood seeping out under the adhesive and a bruise forming and spreading out beyond the pod. The last one was only a couple hours old - tried to suck the insulin back out of it after removing it - insulin was tinged with blood - such a waste.
Sorry you are having such a hard time.
Problem is me, or my body, however you look at it. The pods weren't failing, I was just hitting blood vessels or something, who knows. The one I have in now has been perfect (knock on wood!). No bruising or blood that I can see. Can't even feel it, actually. Now, that's how I would like every one of them to work!
