Ok...we have had the day from you know where. My son has been on the omnipod for two weeks. During those 2 weeks, in total, we have had 2 occusions, 1 pod failure during priming, 2 cannulas that have come out, and 1 cannula that was bent when it came out.
This morning he was scheduled to go to an all day volleyball camp. When he looked at his pod, the window had a fair amount of blood in it and his numbers were high. We thought it best to switch it out since he was going to be gone all day and didn't want to deal with it at camp. At this point, we only had 2 pods left becasue from what I have now found out, the ones that were shipped to us are missing (lost, who knows). So we changed pods and right in the middle of breakfast and getting his bolus, he had an occlusion. Now I am getting nervous. As we were priming the next one (and our last one) it had a pod failure. Luckily our omnipod rep was going to be in the area that his camp was being held and he met us there and gave us another box.
Has anyone had the same experience? Does it get better? My son is almost ready to go back to shots but he wants to try it for a few more weeks to see if it gets better. Thanks for listening!!!
