Hi Peter, to reassure you about the tying yourself in knots, at Barts I think they will offer you the omnipod pump which doesn’t have any tubes but has a fancy wireless controller (
Also the hospital is great- I’ve been going there for a decade. On my last visit to the nurse she asked if I would like to trial a pump to see if I like it, so I’m not sure that the waiting list will be that long! After that appointment I’ll be getting a (temporary) CGMS next week, followed by a pump to play with in April- but this wait is mostly so that I can start in the school holidays when I’m off work. Not sure how long the wait will be if I decide I want one permanently…
Anyway, just wanted to reassure you that I’m sure the team at Barts won’t just stick you on something that you’re not happy with :)
