Sphincterotomy recovery

Hello everyone,

I’ve received a recommendation to “seriously consider” undergoing a Sphincterotomy procedure following an unsuccessful attempt with Botox injections. Despite being scheduled for a second round of Botox, my consultant has strongly advised me to opt for the “risky” operation. The potential risk, according to him, includes the possibility of developing incontinence, which is a source of significant concern for me.

I’m reaching out to inquire if anyone has undergone this procedure before. If so, I’m curious about the recovery time and whether it effectively addressed the issue without resulting in incontinence.

Thank you in advance for any insights you can provide.
