Has anyone ever had botox injections for fissures?
Dx with UC in 97, hospital stays monthly, tons of blood transfusion, bowel rest on TPN, prednisone, asacol, sulfa,
99- multiple failed remicade treatments, more hosptial stays
finally in 2001 had enough and had total colectomy (j-pouch) surgery, 1st step was good, then the reversal was not such a breeze, got peritinitis and almost didn't make it.
the rest of 2001-2006 were amazing!
now having problems again- they are thinking Crohns.- have been on Humira with no luck

I was offered it, but was very concerned about the side effects. You have even less (!!!) control over your bowels while the botox is active, meaning that you have to stay even closer to the toilet - a scary prospect for someone who was struggling with making it to the loo in time anyway.
