Not exactly. When I disconnect I always aim the end connector straight up and
keep it parked above the rest of the hose. When I reconnect I just do a .2 unit
bolus to verify it. If that doesn't start showing insulin at the point I just do
it 1 more time.
The hose is too small to drain out even if aimed downhill for short periods.
I've never had to put as much back in as you say.
