I would be interested in the 80% positive experinece from ECT that you cite. In all my research before I decided to do ECT, I never saw anything about an 80% positive experience. For me it was devastating. I have some severed impairments now from just 7 RuL treatments from over a year ago. I am getting neuropsych testing done in two weeks, and then we shall see. You should know also that my husband (before he retired) was a neuropsychologist who was very opposed to me getting ECT. He said I might as well have someone hit me over the head with a sledgehammer. I was desperate, however, to get over feeling so profoundly depressed. I was not suicidal and was going to work every day, but my pdoc at that time kept pushing the ECT until I finally gave in. I am sorry now that I did it. I also broke a tooth from the ECT and now have to have a bridge as that tooth had a root canal and then got infected and had to be pulled.

I now have a new pdoc and am now on parnate which works well for me. I still have dips into depression, but I don't stay there.
