    Botox to Bladder?

    My bladder is getting worse and worse,so my doctor suggests that I get Botox done on my bladder. Here is my problem, I am on 10mg dose of ditropan twice a day and still leak. I cath around the clock every 3 hours or so,sometimes sooner. I lately will leak after about 2 hours. Gets VERY fusterating!! When I cath I will get around 250-300 cc's each time, and when I leak I'll get around 350-400cc's. I don't change my liquids going in at all.
    When they tested my bladder,where they put the catheter in and put water in the bladder and see when it wants to be emptied.The test showed that it was spasming like a heartbeat. So I'm hoping that this will be my luck and work like a charm.
    any ideas if anyone has gotten it done? Does it really work??
    God is good

    Botox is in theory, a time reversible procedure ... after so much time (dose and frequency dependent), if this is not something that worked as you had hoped for you would most likely not have to live with the unplanned result forever.

    RP-
    I don't know anything about the botox for the bladder, but I was wondering if you've tried any bladder meds other than Ditropan? I went thru the gamut of bladder meds trying to find what worked as Ditro didn't do much of anything for me. I take Sanctura now and it's working wonderfully. I also don't have the horrible dry mouth side effect tha Ditro had(YEAH)...I take 40mgs(2 20mg tabs) 2x/day of the Sanctura. I hope you find something that works better for you soon, I know it can be frustrating.

    I used Diropan xl and had the same problem with leaking, especially at night.
    I then tried Detrol which was recommended here last year and is so much better for me.
