Re: [IPp] infusion site scars



We have those little scars too.  I believe that many of them will be
permanent.  My friend that is an adult has been pumping for over 5 years
and has little dotted scars all over her tummy that have been there for
years.  They are very tiny and they definitely fade.  I figure we still
get such a great benefit from the pump that we just have to accept that
she will have tiny scars.
