Re: [IP] Help = Tape

Leann -

How old is your son and is he thin?  My sofsets (MiniMed) also hurt me at
least for the first day or so - sometimes longer - and I converted to
silhoutettes after that.  Silhouettes ARE more comfortable!  What kiind of
set did you/he put in?  Maybe that's the problem - even MiniMed told me that
softsets could hurt and/or
not (NOT!) work shortly after putting them in, if he's thin.  If you're
using MiniMed, try a silhouette instead.

Best of luck,  Jane
