Had Botox for AF

Postby mark72 » 13 Dec 2014, 08:34

Hi,

This is a great forum.

I had botox for Anal Fissure at the end of April (had 2 hems banded while also there).

The effects were shocking, but now into my eight month after the treatment I still find it difficult to hold in a fart.

In fact, I can't if I am standing up. It is as if the Botox is still making my muscles weak after 8 months!

Has anyone who has had Botox for AF had such long lasting effects.

Regards,

Mark

Mark,

Botox usually wears off within 12 weeks.. Have you been back to your doctor?
2/14 Fissure developed
3/14 Diagnosed w/ fissure given Nifedipine
4/14 Referred to Pelvic Floor Physical Therapy=Pelvic Floor Dysfunction
5/14 Fissure declared "healed"/chronic anal pain persists
9/5/14 Botox to pelvic floor
9/22 biofeedback

Yes went back to the doctor and he didn't seem to take me seriously, saying the botox must have leaked.

Doesn't explain why I still can't hold in gas if I need to.

Mark,

I think you should probably get a second opinion... Botox should have worn out by now since it is only temporary...
