Xiaflex injection was done by a doctor who was in on a study. She has used Xiaflex fifty times. The procedure was painful the way she move that syringe around trying to get all the lumps around the cord for my little finger. She did say that physical therapy exercises are VERY important for a successful outcome and that I need to use a palm splint at night time four months to keep my fingers strai ... Show Full Comment

Just had second injections fo ... Show Full Comment
