My husband only had to attend for a couple of hours and meet the specialist nurse. The nurse tested the response by using the Apogo Pen and he had such a good response we left and he started using the pen straight away.
The pen was not really enough so shortly afterwards the nurse came to our home and set him up on the pump. I think some patients have a district nurse come out at first until they are full conversant with it.
It is fairly easy to do. I was abit nervous about applying the needle but it is ony very short and has a circular plaster over the top.
I change the pump for him everyday. So put the needle on about 8.30am and remove it at night before he goes to bed. I believe some people do wear it at night.
His other medication has been changed but it has taken time and after 6 months he had to have medication. reviewed completely.
I hope that helps. I know of a few people on this with good results.
Feel free to ask any other questions.
