I had ECT about 2 years okay. It was great. The procedure is okay. For me, I went in, they put a band around my forehead and inserted an IV. Then they put some white stuff in the IV, while in the middle of talking to the nurses and doctor, then I open my eyes everyone is gone and I had no recollection of anything happening.
I never got the headaches or sleepiness, felt fine.
I did experience some memory loss, but heck that could be from the bipolar.
For the next two years I didn't have any symptoms, I didn't have the maintenance treatments which could be why the symptoms returned.
Good luck to you.
Today's problems will tomorrow be in the past. One day at at time.
