It seems that each airport has different views on how to clear me.
Putting you pump in your carry on is not advised at it is exposed to x-rays, or pack insulin in checked luggage, the cargo hold gets very cold and could freeze it. (I had a Pump Malfunction error after going through the reg. screening I had to get a new Pump)
In Boston, I was told I could only have 10 synginges ! Really ! Pheniox and Atlanta were the worst, was taken aside behind a curtined area and had to lift my shirt to show then the inserting site, and have everything tested for “bomb” powder. Thank Goodness I had the insertion just above my waist. (I am female and usually inset the infusion below the waist and the CGM above) NC, I had to have all of my luggage splilled out on a exam table, to be examined. And I HAD a MD note to carry the equipment. ---- I also forgot my insulin, so my MD had called a local NC pharmacy and they were able to give me one vile.
My trip to NY needed to be extended a few days longer than I expected. I went to a local Drug store (same chain I have at home) and was able to get some insulin and syringies based o the rx I had on file. ON a local overnight trip I forgot the syringes and was able to get 10 w/o an RX. I did show him the insulin bottle.
on a trip to San Diego for my son’s Grad, from the Marines, Medtronic overnighted me a loaner pump, and a week of related supplies because my luggage got lost. (They charged me for the loaner pump) and charged my ins for the supplies.
Now I carry everything in one carry on, with a note from the MD. Because this is necessary medical supplies they can not limit you to the one carry one rule. This bag does not count, this also goes for food I carry with me for long fights as airport or plane food is not often on my diet.
Every trip is a different experience some easy as pie, some more difficult than it should be.
Now that my son lives in another state and I fly out to visit him I will often mail him a box with some supplies I will need and limit what I carry on. I also carry a current RX from my MD for insulin pens and needles, and will search for a drug store for the area I am going to, within the same chain I use here at home. It reduces the hassles.
I am planning a trip in a few weeks and I have been told that security is very high, in the three airports I will need to be in. I have been told to expect issues.
