Re: [IP] pump site issues

Laurie, your daughter may be having over usage of certain areas  - scar 
tissue, hardened skin, etc. Perhaps she may need to change the kind of set, 
trying alternative site location found on the IP website under frequently 
asked questions. The overused happens to me under my best intentions of 
monitoring where the site was last the last 2-3 times. Using alternate sites 
gives difficult areas a break for a while for healing to take place. Sharon
