Default Does Botox Help If Surgery Fails

Hi,

I spoke with my surgeon today. Surgery is due in two_three months. He says that 1/5 people do not get better. He said this is mainly because scar tissue can grow and re-compress the nerves.

Does anyone know if Botox therapy would work if the scar tissue was causing the compression?

I'm in two minds about the surgery as it seems like a bit of a coin flip.

I don't have an extra rib so I guess its vascular TOS. Any info on the surgery would be great because the surgeon only had about ten minutes to explain it to me.

Thanks,

Shane
