Re: [IP] Fist set Change



Thanks Brian!!  I think I have it figured out on how to insert the site..I
just want it to be painless when I  ..remove... the site as this is her
deciding factor tomorrow if she wants the pump or not..I want it to go
well.  Inserting went fine.

Does anyone have discomfort at the site , with no signs of infection...just
discomfort?
