Update on bladder issue

June 16, 2011 at 8:28 pm

went back to doctor. Going to try botox injections. they will last for a couple of months. if they dont work then they will try interstim. Dr is talking to my neuro to see if should get injections in pt or outpt. I cant imagine doing them in the office without me being sedated. I have pain with just a catherter let alone with injections directly in my bladder from the inside. I told her that i would prefer to have it done in the OR under sedation and in the hospital. Also that in pt would allow me to be monitored for 24 hours by the staff instead of my parents having to do it. she said she would have to talk to her boss and see what he recommends. I think she is leaning toward the OR as well given my history.
