I've been on the pump for a couple weeks now, up until Tuesday I hadn't had a problem with it. I had planned on changing my infusion site that evening when I got home from work - however, during a pretty tough speed workout at the gym the tape adhesion started to peel away from the skin a bit - no big deal I thought it will stay there until I get home. After I finish my run I notice that the adhesionison is half off so I hustle over to Duane Reade to pick up some athletic tape. As I walk up Broad St - I feel a pinch at my side and then realized that the damn thing fell out! Luckily I kept some extra infusion sets at my office but didn't have the minimed inserter - so for the first time I had to jam that big needle into my gut; not fun, I like the inserter much better!
I wanted to see how long 1.4 mg of insulin would last in my pump for so I didn't change the reservoir after the infusion site change - last night at the Yankee game I was greeted by a low reservoir warning - no big deal, I had enough left for the basal during the game and 1 bolus. But I learned two valuable lessons from this - change your infusion site every 3 days (not 4) and 1.4 mg of insulin will last me 5 days, I'll just keep learning this stuff as I go.
