Is my second round of botox a failure?

Postby hopefulbutt » 17 Jun 2013, 16:12

On and off fissure. Botox in January worked great till I retore in march. So just got more botox last Tuesday. 100 units. But honestly don't feel any change at all yet. Worse if anything. It should have kicked in by now right? Ugh! I wished I would have just left it. I feel worse than I have in weeks. Any ideas?

Hi,
I heard it takes 2-3 weeks to kick in. So you are 1 week post only.
Also this small manipulation put more soreness, as I know, this could explain why you feel worse.

Hi hopefulbutt,
I have read that it feels worse before it gets better?! I'm hoping that's true, as I have just had Botox on Friday. I was given 80 units.
Hang on in there!

Thank you. Last time it worked within a week. But this fissure is more internal and just can't help but wonder if it didnt help. Does anyone else have internal fissure?

How do you distinguish internal or external?

Normally I can't see my wound also.
But If I stand up against mirror with my butt, and look back and move chick apart with hands I can find it easily. When I don't move them apart my hole looks like perfect one :D, almost like my newborn boy!

Can't see mine at all. Though my Crs showed me once the little bit that was outside with a camera.
I think botox kicked in because its easier to pass glass but pain is still the same.

Gas I mean. It feels like glass sometimes though.
