What are the possible stomach Botox complications?

stomach Botox complications

As with most medical procedures, you must weigh the risks against the rewards. The doctor who ordered the test will scrutinize it. With Clostridium botulinum injection (Botox), gastroscopy is an invasive procedure with risks and complications. Significant risks can include:

  • Disturbance of heart rate and breathing.
  • Bleeding from the injection; usually resolves itself.
  • A small tear or damage to the lining of the upper digestive tract.
  • It may require an operation to repair any damage.
  • A reaction to any of the medication
  • pain in the throat and abdomen.

When the gastroscope passes through the digestive system, it makes contact with the lining, which could cause a small amount of bruising. An incomplete gastroscopy occurs when the procedure is abandoned due to technical difficulty or is causing you distress. 

Clostridium botulinum (Botox) can cause:

  • rashes
  • chest pain
  • Heartburn
  • Fever
  • Joint pain

Other reactions include: 

  • abdominal pain 
  • diarrhea
  • difficulty swallowing
  • dry mouth

You must remember that this technique helps you lose weight, but if you do not commit to a healthy diet and exercise continuously, it will not work well, as if you did not undergo any procedure.
