Embarrassing Question About First Xiaflex Injection
« on: August 01, 2017, 09:41:02 AM »

Will hopefully be getting first Xiaflex injection soon.  Waiting for insurance approval.  Was afraid to ask the doctor, but was wondering if the Xiaflex shot(s) are given while you have an erection? Do they give you a shot, or something else in the way of a vasodilator to induce an erection, or do they give you the Xiaflex shot(s) without an erection

Thanks Crooked_Stick.  But I was wondering if they give you an erection first, so they can mark where they need to do the injection.  Then, after the erection goes down, they give you the Xiaflex shot flaccid.

No....they have made a determination about where to inject prior. Generally you have the ultra-sound while erect in one visit. This is suppose to give them an idea about where to inject. It's mostly guesswork and prior experience by whoever is administering the shot. It's helpful for you to provide you doctor/tech with some photos of your erect penis for reference. This also helps with judging your results. When you go in for an injection it only takes a few minutes. If I had a 1 PM appointment I would be back at the office by 2.
