Botox for my daughter....a bit worried

Hi all, new to this site! My daughter is 11 and has had her 7th lot of Botox in her right arm. This time it has made her wrist, which is usually very tight, really floppy, to the point she can't even lift it at the moment. She had her Botox 2 weeks ago. I have never seen this before so was wondering if anyone has?? A bit worried!!

    Welcome to the community.

    Any concerns over medical treatment should be taken up with your doctor in the first instance. It does sound though as if the botox has been very effective this time, so it is likely that your daughter will be referred for physio therapy or some exercises to help.

    I can imagine the worry it is causing you, and how frightening it could be for  your daughter, so if you haven't done so already please make that appointment with your doctor.

    As an individual I stood alone.

    Thanks for the reply :-) I had already contacted OT and Millie's paediatrician who explained some things. :-) I was just looking to see if anyone else had experienced this also :-)
