Re: [IP] Swimming with the pump



Have you thought about using a skin prep?  They have some really STICKY 
stuff out there on the market for Ostomy patients.  I have used Bard, but 
it's not so sticky.  I cannot remember the name right now of the one that 
works the best.  I have found that the Tender set stays on better than the 
IVP tape.  However, I have to change my set the night before I take a shower 
the next morning or it will come out too!  I suggest talking with your 
health care provider (CDE) about a prep.
Hope this helps!

I have a question.  My son disconnects when he swims but each time his site
comes out and we need to change it. How do you swim and not lose your site?
