I began to use pump after I had my baby, have been using it for about 6 years now.
But now finacially that cost become more and more unpleasant, and honestly, when I was using conventional injection I controled it pretty well too. Asked my doctor before for switching back, he didn't even give a thoughts, tomorrow it is my appointment again, prepare to ask again.
Has anyone here done this?

I don't see a problem. You have to do what works best for you. I was offerred a pump, and frankly, I don't want to be bothered with something stuck to me all the time and my skin is sensitive to adhesives, anyway. I'd much rather just inject. The injections are painless and only take a second. Diabetes can be controlled quite cheaply using syringes and bottles as opposed to the expensive pens, too, if money or insurance is an issue.

Yes I have had to do the same thing for the cost. I chose pens as they are almost as convenient as my pump was and the lantus works just as I remembered it. So far I see little to no difference.
