Botox for Chronic Exertional Compartment Syndrome

    Hi all,

    I was wondering if anyone who had failed pressure release surgeries were recommended for Botox on the compartments.

    Did it work and who provided the treatment/procedure?

    I've had 2 X failed pressure release surgeries (one was successful for a few months), 2 X failed running re-education programmes, epidural, muscle biopsy, at least 5 X failed inserts, 2 X CT scans, blood tests, etc, etc, etc between HSE & NHS.

    I was recommended for the new treatment until it was found to be experimental and only available in the US. Had an argument with a consultant in SSC over it.

    No surgeon wants to touch me after the surgery didn't work a second time but after 15 years with the condition, I can confirm, it's not an injury I can manage, so I'm still looking for a solution...
