Re: [IP] Why would blood pour from site?



Phoebe:
    My 15 yr old daughter Melissa has also had this problem..seems she's more
adept at inserting on one side than the other..feels "backwards" to her when
she's doing the opposite side, being right-handed
    As for the previously mentioned bleeding problem, this too happened to her
once...scared her but it wasn't a big deal
    Thirdly, the one & only time she had a problem with tubing was the very
first weekend on the pump when the tubing wrapped so tightly around her body
while she was sleeping that it actually SNAPPED in two- clean break!!!..Nice
introduction to pumping, huh?
     Well, 2 years later, she's still an ardent pumper & that hasn't happened
since...weird.....
