  • Prolapse Due to Botox in Pelvic Floor?

    Hi,
    I had Botox injected in my pelvic floor for the first time 2 weeks ago. I noticed that my bladder and rectal is mildly prolapsing. According to my doctor, this is a temporary side effect that sometime occurs bc the Botox paralyzed the walls in the pelvic floor and should wear off in 2-4 months. Has anyone experienced this with Botox Pelvic Floor Injections?
    Thank you!

    I've never had Botox, but wanted you to know I'll be thinking of you and hope it does wear off quickly.

      Thanks Donna, I hope so too. I am really scared about having a prolapsed bladder. I had my IC symptoms under control and thought the Botox would help my pelvic floor, but instead it caused another issue. Not sure what to expect. Thanks again

        I had a prolapsed bladder and the only good thing about it is that it was fixable --- and it's been fixed.

          I know this was over a year ago, but I was wondering what happened with your bladder? I also had botox injections in my pelvis and just yesterday discovered my bladder fell! Really concerned, did it eventually get better, I do not want surgery!!!!! I see my doctor on Tuesday! I had bad pelvic floor dysfunction, that physical therapy was not enough! Thanks for any input!

              Hi! I just received this notification, sorry. It turned out that my bladder did not prolapse, it was just the "feeling" of it. That feeling did pass after a few weeks and I never did botox again bc it was a horrible feeling. Have you seen a doctor that says that it actually is prolapsed? Hopefully once the botox starts to wear off in the pelvic area it will be strong again to hold everything in place. I think this takes a couple of months. Botox in the pelvic area wears off faster than the bladder. Right now your muscles are basically paralyzed, but I hope and pray that it wears off soon and returns to normal. I started having a pudendal nerve block at the Alcock's canal and ischial spine that takes away the burning and last about six months. Please let me know if you have anymore questions. I'll keep you in my thoughts and prayers. I know how you feel.

                Thank you for responding so quickly, this is my first post ever! I went in Friday and saw a nurse practitioner who said it has prolapsed but not as bad as I think! She said it is level one but during the day depending on what I do it drops a little further! It is totally creeping me out, I didn't know you could see it ever! I am doing kegel exercises as I push it back up! It is not coming out of me but I feel pressure, I have had so much pelvic pain over the last 5 months the botox actually helped but I am praying now I won't have to have surgery to tack it back up, I heard that's painful and causes problems! I just hope Tuesday when I see my regular doctor she will have better answers! It make sense that my muscles are really relaxed there and it fell, I just hope I can strengthen there and it will hold again I am so tired of dictors and injections and appts I could scream!!! Thanks for your input!!!

                  I remember my urologist told me at the time that he didn't recommend me having any surgery to fix it (when I thought it was prolapsed) bc it should fix itself once the botox wears off. What did the NP recommend? I think your doctor who performed the procedure should be able to tell you if this is common and what usually happens in this type of situation. I completely understand the pressure feeling and kegals always helped with that. A friend of mine, that also has IC, bladder prolapsed and she had it fixed and is doing well now. The good thing is that it is fixable, but I understand the frustration of additional surgeries. I hope Tuesday gets here really fast for you and the doctor has good news! I would stay on bed rest if possible until your appt, maybe that will help.

                    many women have mild prolapses and aren't even aware--is it possible you had a mild one, and are now more aware of it?
                    also i recommend to anyone with prolapses to check out Christine Kent's work at Whole Woman. she uses posture and exercises to reverse prolapses very successfully. i had stage 3 prolapses, and following her work they are now very mild and i live very well with them. so they aren't gone, but rarely bug me.
                    hang in there, sounds like a lot can change, but if they are there i would recommend checking out Whole WOman's stuff.

                      The np said there are 3 options, one use Premarin cream to repair the loose tissue because of possible menopause related, she didn't know anything about botox, use a pessary, a device that holds the bladder up but can cause complications or surgery! Thanks for your help, the kegels are hard because everything is so relaxed! I have been going through pelvic pain for months, now starting to feel better but now this! Just feeling frustrated!!!! I have been out of work so long!!

                        Looking at the site right now, thank you for the information! I was told a long time ago I had a little prolapse but I could not see it! I didn't really know what it meant! Now I actually see it, it is creepy to me and scary! I am sure it is from the botox, everything is so relaxed, I am just praying it can be reversed! The kegels don't seem to help right now because everything is sooo relaxed, I can barely do them! Just scary!!!

                          Kegels aren't usually good for interstitial cystitis patients. I had a cystocele repair several years ago --- it was severe enough to require a sling. It has not returned.

                          I know what you mean that it's creepy and scary --- mine was hanging out about an inch --- YUCK!

                          Sending warm healing thoughts,

                            If it makes you feel better, Christine Kent doesn't believe Kegels work, and a lot of women find they make them worse (whilst i know other women find they make them better--again, we are all individual!). but just offering reassurance that there are other ways to deal with it.
                            i know, it's a really weird feeling. but hang in there. some women find a sea sponge acts as a natural pessary. i found a small tampon would do the trick (put oil on it if dryness). just to help lift things up to feel a bit better.
                            the forum there is as wonderful as the forum here, so post away and someone will reply!

                              Thank you I really appreciate it! I on the site right now do you have to pay anything at first to get some exercises the free video did not work? What did you buy and do you feel it is worth it! After reading it may not help me because I had a partial hysterectomy years ago!
