a uro-neurologist has offered me this treatment option of having BOTOX injections in the bladder to improve bladder incontinence symptoms,
he said it improves MS patients urgency, frequency and control of their bladder,
you are under a local anaesthetic for 45 minutes during the injections, and the effects last 6-12 months before requiring further injections,
this 'trial' seems promising and as i have this option for treatment am very tempted to go ahead with the injections,
my bladder has been very poor over the last year, passing urine every 45-90 minutes, lack of control and very urgen neeed to goi have
i have nocturnal enuresis every night 1-3 times each night.
but before i have the injections i wanted to hear from others who have had or are still having botox injections in the bladder
how are your bladder symptoms before and after?
would you recommend this treatment?
has anyone heard of good or bad reports of this treatment? any long-term risks/danger?
how often do you need further injections in the bladder?
- im sick of the bladder drugs like tolterodine, oxybutynin, trospium etc, as they seem to weaken my legs and blur my vision
do you get side effects with botox injections in the bladder?]
my dr just warned me if you stop passing urine after the injections i may have to self-catherize,
something which ive never done but hope it isnt too fiddly / difficult or risky with uti's
