[IP] Infusion Sites
This is a record of my endo visit yesterday, and yes, there is a bit of devilry in me at times. I am not a very modest person - conservative, I follow societies "rules" and dress with a modicum of decorum - but I think that we overdo it. God gave us all bodies that have the same basic parts and with differences necessary for procreation. I had noticed while in the hospital getting set up on my pump that my endo practically freaks if I am only partially clothed. He walked in one day when I was doing an above the waist insertion and got really embarrassed. He's my doc - it just doesn't bother me if he sees my body but it did bother him.
My husband and I were talking about insertion sights after I got my pump. My CDE had suggested that I avoid the obviously used ones on the 2.5 inches right and left of my zipper area (remember, I injected through clothes). Jon asked how she could tell, and I showed him. He suggested the obvious - why not gather some extra tissue in the upper torso area that some women add artificial supplements to, i.e. breasts.
I could have asked my CDE (yes I noticed that it wasn't on MM site map), but I "forgot" and asked my endo yesterday. After turning 14 shades of red and agreeing that the results could have benefit, he thought that I should avoid it to avoid any lumpy tissue. I said I would at least until the data on whether I will get lumpy is in. I haven't had any problem with the sites in the central axis area that MM site map also did not plot. Have fun - I'm going to try the workout again. Today I've set an increased tem basal for 2.25 hours before workout and I'm going to keep it increase for at least 2 hours after.
