Does anyone have experience using their chest as an infusion site?
I injected for 38 years, and never considered injecting in my chest. I had enough real estate in my stomach, legs, arms and butt. But I know some women try this. Also, I've also heard of a male skier trying it, and he's 4% body fat, not fleshy in the chest area.

Any experience with this?
Any recommendations?

As a guy, your back might be a better site, it has a lot more fat. You will have to enlist a partner for that adventure to be successful.

No I havent tried it...but it sounds kinda I dont know not somewhere I'd want to inject myself at. Kinda has an OUCH factor to it.

Interesting idea? I have a little meat on my bones, but would be concerned that the cannula would be in my pectoral muscle, not the fat tissue. If you think you can get the cannula to avoid your muscle tissue, then I would say give it a try.

Interested to know your results as I am developing a bit more scar tissue.

I have a friend (using omnipod) and she says she has had success there.

ahhh no
