I have no nerve endings in breast area after masectomies - could I inject in that area.
Does self injecting Saxenda hurt. Does it need to be injected in the stomach?

It is supposed to be injected into a good fat layer, I doubt that your chest is a good place. Injections are not painful for most people.
It really doesn't hurt. Occasionally you will get an injection where you might feel a twinge but overall I have to look at where I put the needle in to make sure it even went in. I was told to consider the belly like a clock and space out the injections by going clockwise. FYI... I hate needles and I was hesitant to even go on the med... but really no worries!
