@ Orange, welcome to the forum and I loved reading your post. Thank you so, so much for sharing your story with us. You have gone through so much and deserve sincere congratulations on your tremendous success! You wrote “my doctors were completely unfamiliar with the botox procedure and were convinced that PT would work … I could barely tolerate even the smallest dilators – home dilation exercises were next to impossible.” Reading this inspires me so much to advocate and educate regarding the botox procedure. I also had Lamont Level 5 and attempted physical therapy which proved to be impossible. This procedure worked where every other treatment failed! You also wrote “when I woke up about 30 minutes later with the blue dilator (largest size!) inside me with no pain, I burst into tears because I was so happy.” This is EXCELLENT!!! When you wake up, it truly is one of the best feelings in the entire world to know that something can fit inside of you and cause NO PAIN!!! It’s a surreal feeling. Finally, you wrote “it’s been about six months since I had the procedure done, and I am virtually pain free!!” EXCELLENT again and my sincere congratulations to you on your success. I look forward to reading your posts.
