She has lost control of her bladder a few times. The doctor says it is not a dropped bladder. She does not constantly go to the bathroom during the night. I am concerned for her and suggested that she use adult diapers for the rare occasions. I have read a lot on this site and feel because of her age factor and hearing of the use of catheters that this is not a good thing for her to do.
Botox has nothing to do with catheters that I know about. It is a viable solution. Yes, she could wear adult diapers every time she goes out in public, but if it is rare, that may not be optimal for her. They would put her under with anesthesia so that she doesn't feel the injections. It's up to her.
It is possible if she has the botox that she might have to have use a catheter. I have been to a specialist for this and she would not inject anyone without consent of maybe needing a catheter. I get botox for headaches so not sure if I can do both. I get my injections Wed so will ask him. I get high dose for my headaches. I would rather have bladder problem. I think most older women have that problem so not uncommon. I have had a severe bladder problem for 20 years but mine caused by aneurysm surgery. I take a pill called Mybetric which works most of the time. It has no side effects and works! Have them check to see if they can give it to her. Because of her age not sure. The company is very generous with samples so maybe if Dr agrees try that. In the mean time try pads such as poise. Best of luck.to your Aunt.
