Botox instead of LIS - any experience?

Postby Cheryl888 » 19 Jan 2015, 12:15

My CRS says I am not a good candidate for LIS as I've had 4 children and suffer from chronic diarrhea. She thinks the next step for me is Botox. Has anyone else had the Botox injections and if so can you share your experience with me? I'm looking for any info you can provide. Thanks!

Hi there.

To be completly honest, not that many in here has healed on botox. I guess you have a 50/50 chance, if you manage to keep your BM's soft enough, not to rip it open again. I managed to heal on botox, and have a diary about the process:

Best of luck!

- Healed by Okt '13, although I still had some irritation for about a year.
- Now Feb '16, all is good. Still take magnesia, and squat precautionary.
