    Hi
    Dr. Yip
    Good morning.

    One of my left hand finger can’t bend.
    This already more then 21 months.
    On the beginning, there are two finger.
    When i consult doctor, he told is “trigger Finger” and give one injection to one of them.
    According to the doctor, that injection he give to me only can inject 3 time.
    So, the other finger i don’t asking for the injection.
    And according to the doctor, it will slowly recover.
    But after long time (21 month), it look like become more worse.
    Begin still can bend and jam during i open the finger.
    But now it can clamp or bend it.
    Is that i need to get the another injection?

    Thanks

    Regards
    Chongcw
