My son has been dead set against getting a pump, did not want anything attatched to him, and has wanted to remain on MDI. I have thought he is old enough to discuss and decide such a thing along with me. And I have seen no need in pushing the issue. But at our last visit to the endo, even though his A1C was pretty good, there was a problem I didn?t post about that is leading me to kind of want to push him to pump. He has Hypertrophy in his belly and cannot use it for injections until about January of next year. We are definitely rotating shots, but since I tried to do that before and it still resulted in the belly problems, I am worried it may happen to the areas we are injecting now, legs,arms,bootie, and that we?ll end up with no place to inject. We are scheduled for a pump class next week just to see what it is all about. I do have my own fears about pumping, one being cost, I have a 5K deductable, but I have already decided to forgoe the new kitchen floor I saved up for and put that towards the pump, after all we can live with a crappy floor a few years longer, whatever. I am concerned though about monthly costs, if it costs more each month than what we are doing now, I?m not sure I can manage it. I am also a bit scared because of things I have seen posted here, occlusions,boluses not delievered, problems with sites,problems with products and the companies, on and on. Are there more problems? Or more positives with pumping? I also read things like dual wave bolus, square bolus, and think WTH is that? I feel so afraid I just won?t understand how to do any of it. Reading some things on here it just seems so out of my range of comprehension. I also have absolutely no clue about any pumping products or options. Can anyone offer any words of wisdom? Anything that might make me feel less afraid of pumping?
