Xiaflex injection schedule
« on: November 20, 2020, 04:31:23 PM »

Hello, the urologist that I am seeing does not follow the official Xiaflex schedule of two injections one to three days apart. 
His office does one injection followed by a second injection four weeks apart.

How many of the Xiaflex vets here have followed this schedule?

I'm a little worried since this is not the official protocol.

I’ve heard of various protocols to save expense.  You might try googling it

I called US Bioservices and spoke with a pharmacist who said she had never heard of a protocol that was outside the range of 1 to 5 days between first and second injection as stated in the protocol.
Hence my question and concern.

I’ve seen alternative protocols here from certain docs.  Maybe search forum tho might be hard to find.  If you don’t trust it maybe go w another doc.  Of give it a try...nay be able to do it twice as long for same price.  Just be SURE To do TRACTION between shots which improved outcomes,

I would get another doc, but this urologist is apparently one of the "experts" in the US.  It's taken me years just to get to this point.

Are you including traction?
