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 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!
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.
