Xiaflex injection process
« on: June 21, 2022, 08:46:04 AM »

I have started injections.  What is experience with dr doing ultrasound vs just feeling for plaque?  My doctor says he can feel it and did injection.  No numbing pain not bad.  Very little swelling or bruising.  Faithfull with stretching and also using restorex.

Just wondering about the protocol and no ultrasound.

Teddan, ultrsound is not necessary. It can be determined by hand examination when plaque quantity, size, & locaons decrease. Good you had no swelling in recent injections. I had many Xiaflex injections and caan report that swelling and bruising varied. Sometimes swelling and  bruising  were minimal. Other times these conditions were severe. Also, someimes Xiaflex performed noticeable plaque decrease in 5 to 14 days. Other times it did nothing. It seemed to work better and more consistently in later injections. However,  this experience is different for different patients and various  doctors.
