Flexor tendon Fdp laceration, dip joint cannot actively bend on its own
The repair was a 4-strand suture and I was mobilized on the 7th day after surgery. Repair was on my pinky finger, laceration occurred at the crease where the tip of the pinky bends.
I am 6 months post op and still am not seeing much progression with my DIP joint and I have been extremely compliant with therapy. My doctor advised against tenolysis surgery due to risk of re-adhesion. Would shockwave therapy be able to fix my problem? Do you think I should do tenolysis with a different doctor? Also it always feels like I have something stuck inside my finger.

Any suggestions to help improve my range would be appreciated.
