Anyone know if Botox injections into external sphincter cause "total incontinence"?
I am due to have this done next week due to dyssynergia and higher bladder pressures...I also am unable to intermittent cath as my sphincter clamps down so hard its impossible to pass the cath (I have tried everything) I am retaiing on avg 300cc or more and I can feel pains in my back (kidneys) so I need this done.
The reason I ask is the nurse said it just "relaxes" the sphincter and helps the coordinate the bladder and sphincter...in reading on the forum and online a little, itseems that after this injection (they said "100 units") I will need an external cath AND WILL BE 100% incontinent? Anyone kinow for sure? Is there a way that they inject the sphincter to just get it to relax?
Thank you for any help!
