It is scary contemplating going in for anything. My consultant has the attitude of its your pump and you look after it. Bring in everything you need and if you need anything contact the Diab team. I have to say they are brilliant at Poole Hospital I actually managed to inject my own anti clogging DVT injection HUGE needle!! but I left only a small bruise in comparison to the ones the nurse gave me. Obviously i still have the injection knack after 4 years on the pump.
