Re: [IPp] Bent Cannulas?



Rick,

Where are you inserting the set?  Our daughter, Emily,10, only 55 lbs(no
fat) had trouble with her tummy and bent cannulas.  We switched to putting
the site in her upper hip/buttocks and saw great improvement.  Good Luck!

Mom of Emily,10, dx'd 9/11/01, pumping since 2/02
