    Hey folks what is the correct time frame to get a 2nd injection if the 1st one didn't do the job fully. My doc says 3 months wait, but I say hit it again now while it is working a bit ( maybe 50% better after 1.5 months). how soon can you get another one. I think by 3 months I will have to start all over?????

    You might let the doctor know you have gotten a partial response and it might effect his decision..I don't inject hands but I would consider doing what you suggest in a joint I do inject such as the knee or rotator cuff.
