    Botox in bladder

    Can anyone tell me the benefits and risks of using Botox in your bladder? I recently read that if you are still having trouble with accidents after a mitrofanoff surgery, Botox can help. Right now, I'm on 20mg of Ditropan XL to try to reduce the accidents.

    Botox can relax the muscles of the bladder & help to prevent overactive bladder. It required repeated injections. It helps some, others it does not.The average length of time it works is approximately 2 months.
