I went to the neurologist today, for my follow-up after the botox treatment. For a brief two weeks in October I had no migraines. It was lovely. And then they came back. Less frequent than previous, but still there.
So the doctor wants to try the treatment again, but double the dose. Not in my forehead, but in other areas of the head/neck/shoulders. Last time one vial resulted in 47 injections, so I’m not looking forward to 94, however…he might be able to get me samples, so I don’t have to pay the $550 (since my insurance won’t cover it). I have to check back in two weeks. Fingers crossed.
I’m willing to try it once more, even if he can’t get the samples. However, if I don’t see a better improvement, that will be the last one.
Update: They got the samples! Huzzah. Just have to pay the “injection fee”
