Tonight I had blood coming out from underneath my CGM site, and when I pulled it out it started gushing blood. I don’t have complete video footage from the beginning but here is some of what happened.
CGM gushing site from Gina Capone on Vimeo.
Gina. Sounds gross! I wish I could see the video:(
Gina – You’re blood gusher looks like a few I’ve had before – we are twins you and I (am sure there are many others thinking the same thing)! Though I think that I surpassed you in the butterfly design I made in the paper towel when I had unfolded mine – I was good in art when I was at school. The things we PWD’s do to stay in the zone and laughing at ourselves!
Oh man! That’s awful! I’ve never had a gusher that bad from any site!
Ouch. I don’t know which I hate more: when these start gushing; or the bruises afterwards.
this is really no big deal. You hit a small vein with your catheter and when you pulled it out it bled. There is no big mistery to this. In case this happens again, just apply pressure for a couple of minutes instead of just tapping the skin and it will stop.
How is the CGM working for you anyhow ?
Yea, I hit a vein…the video footage was at the end because my hubby didn’t move fast enough to grab the camera when it was gushing out. I applied pressure which is why it stopped.
The CGM works well for me. Are u on one?
Wow. Hi. My first time removing my Sensor it bleed fast and full! I was surprised. It is nice to know now that it might be more common. Thank you. I have enjoyed seeing your site. I just started in the Paradimg and Real-Ttime System last Thursday. Bob GentleB@gmail.com
