Still on Combo. Got 2 new boxes of cannulas without tubing and 10 days ago started them. None of them have adhered more than 24 hours which has resulted in me being short to go on holiday as I have gone through a complete box in about 10 days. Phoned them on Tue and they ordered me 2 new boxes to be delivered
weds. Didn't happen and I went out with my friend to the county town shopping today on the train (40m mins journey), as pre-arranged last week. J rang me to say new supplies had arrived today. After my shower this morning I had checked my cannula and it looked fine, firmly attached.
Get off the train. Walk to TK Maxx and find a lovely swimsuit for £9 and go to try it on only to discover that my cannula is peeling round the edges. Fortunately still stuck in me. Go next door to Boots and buy some MIcropore tape and request to the assistant on the medical counter that I could have access to somewhere private to put the stuff onto my medical device (explained all). She was lovely and took me to a private room. Unfortunately it was engaged, so I ended up with her and my friend standing guard whilst I unzsipped and opened my trousers and applied the tape over my cannula in a corner between the photo booth and a wall! Ho ho.. at least it stuck it down for the day!
Been really nervous all day, but all has been well since! What an experience!
