Oia showed no indication of soreness or pain after the two injections of Botox to her right calf. She carried on as I hoped she would. Doctor told us that changes would begin to be noticeable after a weeks time so we were shocked to notice a huge change in her tone just 24 hours later. To say that her foot was flat, meaning all the way down to the floor would be a stretch, but it was pretty darn close. In fact, while in motion, Oia's right heel is now closer to the ground than her left heel. The relax in her right calf seems nearly miraculous.
Since the injections, it's been safe to allow Oia some time sans AFO. She is no longer walking so high on her right toes which means her ankle is no longer as susceptible to injury. Preventing an ankle injury has always been a constant worry.
So, are we pleased with post-Botox results? Absolutely. And if Oia could talk, I'm sure she'd tell you that too. Too bad the relief is only temporary.
