|The bigger hole is the vagina and the smaller|
hole is the anus.
As for the procedure itself, I'm not gonna lie. It was painful. Fortunately it was a very short-lived pain. I was afraid of the pricking of the needle, but I actually hardly felt that. The pain came when he injected the Botox into my muscles. It felt like fire was spreading through my vagina and all the way to my anus. It was intense, but it only lasted a couple minutes. Within 5 minutes I only felt a slight soreness and no fire, so all in all, not bad if you can deal with a couple minutes of fire. He told me to squeeze and release those muscles at least 100 times that day to make sure the Botox got spread around the muscles. Now we just wait to see what happens - I'm supposed to do aggressive PT and see if it made a difference.
A side note: while we were sitting in Dr. G's office after the procedure he mentioned that my therapist is the best patient advocate he has ever encountered. He actually said, "She's a pain in my ass, but that's not necessarily a bad thing." She will call him until she gets a response and she demands answers. My husband and I feel very lucky to have her in our corner and we agreed that we love that she is a pain in our doctors' asses. Dr. Goldstein referred to her as our quaterback. Now I do know that the quarterback is a very important position on the football field, but that's where my understanding of this metaphor ends. However I'm sure my husband appreciated the sports reference. I'll have to get him to explain to me exactly why our therapist is the quarterback. And now I'm wondering what position our other doctors play. Is Dr. G the tight end? Our PT the kicker?
So getting the Botox was pretty much a positive experience. I had intense pain for a couple minutes, but it subsided quickly. I just hope it helps.
