Has anyone had Kenalog (Triamcinolone acetonide) injections to try to help sphincter muscles relax?

I had an injection last week and initially it seemed to make a difference although one week on its effects seem to be fading away and my tight muscle symptoms are returning.

Not sure if multiple injections are needed at 6 week intervals?

This is my last chance saloon as if it doesn't work then it will be back to the ostomy, which is not too bad if it means I can get on with my life and not have to worry about a poor functioning pouch!

I think Kenalog is used at the Mayo Clinic for this kind of thing, which is why my consultant uses it. I'm not sure of its success rate though. It is predominalty an anti infmamatory but must have somd anti spasm qualties to it i'm assuming.
