Botox and Bulkamid

3 months ago

I’ve had OAB and SUI for years, and has been really bad the last year or more. My urologist suggested bulkamid, then at my preop appt asked me if I wanted to do Botox also! I said yes.

I had my procedure done about 10 days ago. Got a UTI, went to MD for straight cath on day 5. I had retained 550cc (1/2 a liter) I got antibiotics, meds for yeast infection.

The last 2 nights I have drank at least a liter of water, have had no urgency or leaks. Slept til 5! In past I’ve gotten up to 4 times a night to pee.

I am excited to see how this goes. Caffeine of course makes the OAB worse, so have to try to give up my 1 cup of coffee in the am.
