Exclamation OmniPod issues

I am recently very new to the OmniPod systems and have only been using it for a week. Yesterday I noticed blood in the cannula window and with one day left to go on my pod I changed it out for a new one. Today I was monitoring my pod closely and noticed blood in the window again! Is this common or a concern? My BG has been fine but I am still worried as I am new to this. Do I need to change my pod every time I see blood in the cannula window?

I have had blood work its way past the cannula (i find it on the cloth adhesive). My question is hOW can you see anything through that stupid window? its so small and distorted and not even clear.

The blood is about a drop or 2 so it fills up half the window it is really noticeable and red, did you have this happen to you before?

Ive had some pretty bloody adhesives but never anything filling the window.

do you have slow blood clotting? Do you pinch the area where the cannula will go and hold down the pod when you deploy the cannula?

Omnipod issues???

Where do I start, how about training and setup, its only done in public settings, the trainer tried to get me to drive 100 miles to a fast food restaurant to be trained and have the device set up.

Customer support, yeah right, the person that I spoke with had nothing to offer except it is what it is and if I didn't like it too bad.

I have a number of concerns that make me think that the omnipod is nothing more than cheap alternative to the tandem pumps, the biggest is omnipod has no cgm integration.

So, I am boxing this sad excuse for an insulin pump up and sending it back to OMNIPOD.
