For the first time in 15 years, I’ve placed my pump set in my thigh. I know I’m not good at math – but that could very well equal over 1,800 pump sites placed elsewhere on my body – including: stomach (used to use a LOT, but it’s super scarred now), back of my arms, lower back, upper butt (#makessenseifyouhavediabetes). Now that I write that out – there really aren’t that many options. I guess it was inevitable that I try my thigh out at some point.
So, how is it working out, you ask? As I mentioned on Twitter, I feel like I’m alternating between the urge to limp and the urge to tighten my thigh muscle. In time, I’ll get used to it! I’ll try to keep you posted on Twitter or Facebook about it’s absorption.
So, what not-so-normal spot do you use for your pump or CGM when you feel like all of your real estate has been used up? Has anyone used their side boob? Seriously, I know someone has. And seriously, I can guarantee I never will.
