    Are you saying that your incontinence has gotten worse since the Botox treatment? That’s terrible and unusual.   Are you male or female?   Two weeks should be enough time to see good results.  I am male and just had it done for the second time and it has stopped my OAB again.

    Hi, i'm a male who had botox for oab march 2017. For me it didn't work but i agree with barry06553 that it is unusual that after 2 weeks incontinence gets worse. Like you probably know the botox should somehow calm the bladder down. The most common side effect is urinary retention. I experienced that too, especially the first 3 or 4 weeks, and had to catheterized myself several times a day.

    After 2 months how are you now doing? Did it work out for you?
