I have this happen quite often, the needle hitting muscle or scar tissue causing the catheter to bend. Usually happens when you don't have much body fat.

watch out for pockets of insulin forming - don't want to scare monger as pump can be good - but they don't tell u about this with them pump and they can suddenly release and cause hypo's, also if u ever come off the pump diabetes can go crazy!
