I really hope you're right but its now been 7 months since the 2nd Botox and still no improvement really. The first 2-3 weeks I had complete loss of stool on a daily basis. Now it's not quite as bad as that but I still have daily leakage and when I feel I need to go, I have to go immediately otherwise there will again be a list stool. This should not be happening at my age!!
If I'd have known beforehand that this was a potential effect then I don't think if have bothered having the Botox and just put up with the pain and bleeding. As it happens, I now have both :-(
