[IP] Re: Bump after Insertion

    Two cm in height? That is almost one inch in one hour! What is the
diameter? Is there any skin or tubing fluid discoloration? What was the
angle of the Silhouette before you pushed the back half down on to your
skin? I certainly have had plenty of problems with Sils and the Serter but
nothing like this. Just trying to make some sense out of your description
makes me think of body fluids or an allergic reaction.        Peter 1
