Hi!
If you were my patient, I would advise you that you should be certain to use the pump just as your health care providers have suggested.  Be sure to go for any blood tests that they recommend to check levels and or platelet  counts etc.  Be sure to watch the skin around the pump site and report any evidence of infection (redness or swelling).  Other than those suggestions, the pump is fairly straight forward and convenient.  
Good luck!
