Detailed Answer:
Thanks for writing in to us.

I have read through your query in detail.

1. Side effects of Anal Botox injections.

It is normal for your symptoms to slowly improve since the Botox injection isn’t effective immediately.
Botox injection alone is not effective for all fissure patients.
Most patients have a small amount of anal bleeding for up to 24 hours after the injection.
About 10% of patients have some mild flu-like symptoms (body aches, headaches) for 48 hours after the injection.
About 5% of patients notice an increase in passing gas. These symptoms resolve over time.

2. does botox stay where injected? does it ever leave the body?

After 3-4 months Botox does clear out of your system. Botox stays only where injected, it does not roam through the body but attaches to the muscles where injected and subsequently disintegrates.

I hope this helps.
Do write back in case of doubts.
