Home Forums Living with type one Surgery on a pump Re: Surgery on a pump


Hello @Bellabe I had both shoulders released and manipulated at the same time about 3 months back. I was admitted the night previously and stopped my pump at about 7 am to have a sliding scale. I’m glad I did as after capsular release surgery on both shoulders I could hardly move let alone operate my pump. I stayed on the sliding scale until the next morning and was in hospital for 3 nights. It does feel like going backwards swapping a pump for a sliding scale but keeping my pump running was not an option given to me. I hope the surgery helps you out, frozen shoulders are so painful and not being able to lift your arms really limits you. Good luck with it and I hope you get some useful movement back in your shoulder.
