Thread: Pics of pump/sensor sites?

  1. #1

    Default Pics of pump/sensor sites?

    Amy at d mine talks about having trouble rotating sites. I'm wondering if we could starts a picture thread of different site locations. I googled images and saw some pump sites on boobies. And I once saw a pod on someone's calf, which didn't look comfy to me. Anybody want to post pics of your various body parts with your pump sites, pods or sensors? It's so much more informative than that drawing we always see of the shaded out spots. I don't have any right now but I'll post some later.

    Also, it might help my dd to rotate her sites more since she only likes tummy for pump and sensor and used to only like arms for pods. It would help to see wear other people wear there's.

    sounds good, I just saw a Youtube video with a college age girl using the back of her thigh rather than the frontish/side of thigh.

    When I googled I found a pic of a big hairy gut with a pink mio.

    Here is a leg site! We don't like to rotate too often either, but she gets that lipohypertrophy within 3 months if she only rotates between legs or belly, now we are on only arms!

    Hope this works, I couldn't figure out how to just insert a picture.

    I do shots in my calves and thighs and chest and back as well as butt and abdomen and upper arms and occasionally forearms (I used to use forearms a lot but since I developed some kind of neuritis in my forearms I decided to stop).
    My sensors I only place on my butt, abdomen, and upper arm. And I'm not going to do any pictures of my butt.

    Here's a picture of a sensor on my arm from December

    and today


    I once saw a youtube video of an overweight guy who'd recently switched to podding and he said he liked how unobtrusive it was. He said, guess where I'm wearing a pod? and then took off his shirt to show six pods, including two on his man-boobs. It was really awesome. I can't find the video right now.

    This is an arm pod during the summer. She's on her revel now. I'll try to load a pic of the revel and the dex on her belly.
    ETA: Sorry about the size--didn't know how to edit it.

    Can anyone (preferably some skinny arm!) else post pics of arm sites for Medtronic sites? I want my son to expand his site areas, but is nervous about the arm still. He is 5'7", but only 130 pounds.

    Different system, but let me know if it will help - my DS is wearing an omnipod on his skinny arm right now and I can take a pic. He's 5'1" and weighs about 90 pounds.

    LOL, I haven't seen that and CANNOT imagine, but my dd was telling me the other day that a friend from our JDRF support group had told her that her mom had seen those images. I cringed and dd said she definitely was not interested in trying that.
