I’m being offered bladder botox by my urologist to calm down bladder spasms and sensitivity and I wondered what people’s experiences have been.
The kind he’s suggesting should last for 2 years, so if there were any negatives, I’d prefer to know before having the procedure. It’s not like you can reverse it if there are any unwanted effects.
I already ISC, so I don’t see that as a problem. I’m hoping that it will make the bladder more reliable, so I can ISC then go out and know I’ve not got to empty again for X no of hours.
Does it always work right? Does anyone find they lose all control over the bladder so it makes them less continent? What, if any are the effects on the bowel? Is it likely to increase constipation, or will it have no effect at all on the bowel? Are there any other downsides that I’ve not considered?
