Hola, just thought I’d share an experience I had a while back. I had a Dexcom that when I hit the button to insert the sensor, the device got stuck and I had the sensor on me, device stuck to sensor, etc. I felt the needle go in, and there was blood at the site. I ripped off the sensor, and got it apart from the device, and there was no wire. Took the device apart trying to find the wire, as I was worried it shot into my body. Never found it. Called the line and they didn’t seem concerned, but offered me a new sensor. I decided to call the nurse hotline and was told to go to the ER. Seemed like a bit much, but I did. They did an ultra sound and an Xray but no wire to be found. Apparently, the material of the wire is made so that the body doesn’t “reject it” like out of silver or something? I can’t remember the explanation I was given, but it was something like that, so it’s either in the needle (which I couldn’t see it in there, but couldn’t see in there much at all so can’t rule it out) or in my body, in which case who knows where but the ER doctor didn’t seem too concerned.
Weird experience, but now I always check for the wire after removing a sensor site.
