Good morning

I have an insulin pump and have just changed cannula site. It’s quite painful and is not settling. Do I need to change the whole reservoir and tubing of can I just insert a new cannula and re connect ?

Hi @Frankie1707 and welcome to the forums.

I have to be a little careful what I say here because we aren't allowed to give medical advice.

Which pump are you using?

When I had an occlusion with my tandem tslim x2 I was able to call the 24 hour tandem helpline to get advice.... (In my case I was able to just insert a new cannula after they talked me through how to fill it with insulin from the existing pump reservoir before I inserted it. But I still ended up having to change the new cannula a day early as I wasted quite a bit of insulin from the reservoir while trouble shooting and filling the cannula.)
