Do you have a question on Detrusor Weakness or Cic? We have medical experts to help you right away. Ask a Doctor Now »
I have been told that I have a weak detrusor muscle and an overactive bladder. I feel constant irritation in the bladder and sometimes, my lower abdomen area swells up. I had negative urine cultures, and I have been told Botox may help me, but I can only have 50 % or so strength due to the weak detrusor. Can you confirm that Botox and bladder hydrodistention will eliminate constant irritation feeling? Also, can the detrusor ever recover?
Thanks for replying. Is it possible that detrusor can recover in time but not 100%? And the Botox will not help with constant irritation, right? My doctor does not think I have IC. Also sometimes, I get urethral twitching.
Theoretically, it is possible but practically, I have never seen detrusor strength recovering 100 %. In fact, overactivity starts after six months and by nine months to a year, same baseline activity is seen.
But initially after injection, it is possible that you might have to use CIC but strength will return. Do not go for hydrodistension in the same sitting. First just get Botox injection then evaluate the results.
