So sorry to hear about your situation, I certainly know the agony and frustration involved. The cryo didn't have much of an effect on providing relief from the pain I had, but didn't make it any worse . So Dr. P scheduled me for the Botox injections, which were done with the idea that there would probably be subsequent Botox treatments to follow. However, the first treatment did resolve some of the pain, and in the two+ years since then, I've not needed any more Botox injections as the pain did not come back. It was not a total cure, and I still have constant pain, but not to the extent I had before. But I don't think about the pain all the time like before, so for me, I think the Botox did something to 'turn off' the severity of the pain impulses that the nerves were sending. Hope this helps, and although I'm not here often, I do sometimes check in from time to time.
