I had prostate cancer and the radiation made my bladder leak so bad it was hard to even leave the house. A week ago i had the botox shot and after one day i had to use a catheter and a bag until yesterday. Now i can go just fine but the leaking has come back and so im wondering how long before i know if this worked?
My doctor would tell people that it should work in 7-14 days. But my Botox would always take effect on day 15. When I told him that, he would say, yes, another patient it took 15 days, but he liked to say 7-14 days. But if it doesn't work, which it didn't work with me at first, then he increased the dose. Plus you get more response as you get repeated doses of Botox. You will have to wait about 10 to 12 weeks before getting more Botox. What did your doctor tell you about how long it would take to work?
So don't give up yet. Good luck.
