wojack posted:
Well, I am a veteran of several medications for my bladder control....none seems to work. Now, my dr. has just mentioned botox in passing and says she will talk more about it during the next appt. Anyone know any practical info about how it works and IF it works... Please tell me about your experience with this form of treatment.

I see you didn't receive receive any reply in 3 years... Did you find a solution. Same case for me. I am considering implant for sacral neuromodulation. I would like to have exchanges with you.

I, too, have been on a variety of meds for years, specifically Vesicare 10 mg at this time. Without a "control", I'm not sure how well it is working. Because of the frequent and, often, urgent urination trips, a newly referred urologist has suggested the Botox and the Medtronic, a sacral neuromodulation system. The latter sounds better to me, but I'm still thinking. Medtronic has an "Ambassador" program, a way to talk to people who have used it. I haven't gone on that website yet, but I think I will. I would be interested in others' experience.
