A summary of issues in electro convulsive therapy (ECT)?
Has anyone had electro convulsive therapy (ECT)?
Someone I know, who has been on medication for 30 yrs, really needs it as a last resort, but, she's terrified. She's severly depressed and house-bound.
I'd appreciate hearing specifics from anyone who's had ECT:
1)What to expect
2) How many sessions are needed
3)Are there memory/cognitive problems afterwards
4)What does it feel like
Everything you can think of. Please feel free to email me if you want it to remain confident.
