Re: [IP] Temporary disuse of pump?

<< Has anyone out there ever temporarily gone off the pump, or considered
 doing it, for a brief amount of time? >>
My son has been on the pump for 2 years and the endo asked him at his last 
visit if he'd like to take a month off the pump.  She said that it's not 
unusual for people to take a pump break.   He needs to use areas other than 
the abdomen too.  She said it would take up to six months to heal.
