The removal of my first sensor went quick and easy on July 1. The Dr. noted that he has had enough practice to refine his removal procedure. He grabbed the sensor with tiny forceps and used a scalpel to cut through some adhesions around the sensor and out it popped! The scar from the removal looks a little bigger than the insertion scar but it healed over quickly and does not bother me. By getting Sensor #2 inserted on June 20 I was able to wait until June 29 to start the 24-hour warm up, followed by initialization (4 calibrations) on June 30. I was getting good data on June 30 because the insertion site had “presoaked” for 10 +/- days.
The Eversense has been most useful to me when I’m outdoors or playing hockey. My summer project has been heavy landscaping (building a gabion wall using a wheel barrow to move 30 tons of rocks) which risks breaking both my phone and watch. I put my phone away, take off the watch and use the vibratory alerts on my arm. I also like the fact that I can run out the door without worrying about grabbing my phone every time.
