Xiaflex Injections for Ledderhose

I was diagnosed with Plantar's Fibroma in 2003 with a tumor about the size of a pea in the right foot with no pain at the time. Since that time, I have a second tumor on the right foot and one large tumor on the left foot. I am now starting to experience pain when standing or walking for an extended length of time. My father had Dupuytren's Contracture in his hand and I guess passed the gene to me. I am now at a time where a decision needs to be made as to surgery or the new injection of Xiaflex. Does anyone know anything about this?

Dupuytrens Contracture has a website and gives information on XIAFLEX unfortunately it deals more with the chords not the nodules. So not an option for us. Please take a read though lots of great information. I have both Ledderhose in both feet and Dupuytrens in both hands. I am just a patient but have researched this alot and wished I would have prior to surgery. !!! I hope this helps you.
