Botox injections for my 19 month old son
I have an 19 month old son with Cerebral Palsy. The doctors have now recommended that he start getting Botox injections to help with the spactisity in his legs. He does not walk , talk, feed himself. He is more like a 4 month old baby rather than an 19 month old toddler. I am afraid of what might happen to him if something goes wrong. I am trying to find out the percentage of cases where the Botox injections had very bad outcomes. i.e. death. I don't want to make the wrong decision about this. I have heard such wonderful things about how this helps kids with CP, but I need to know the odds. I want to give my son the best possible chance at life. I don't want to not do something that might make him so much more happier than he already is. If anyone could help, it would mean the world to me.

Remember this line " Any drug prescribed by a clinician will be the maximum tolerable dose for the body"
The therapeutic indication of Botulinum is for these cases and please let the clinician try out Botox injections, have trust in your treating doctor and life of your little one is very precious which the doctor knows!
Take care and come back to us if you have any further queries.
