Hi bunga,  Welcome to Healing Well forum, we are happy to have you.  Let me tell you a little bit about us here...we are a group forum set up for people to find support from each other with like illnesses, worries, or just to help pick each other up when needed.  Yes, we do at times exchange information on medications and treatments but this is always in a general sense as we are not physicians and can not give out medical recommendations. 
Your asking about ECT and I am assuming that you live elsewhere then the USA?  ECT is used in the US for treatment of depression and other disorders.  However, it isnt as commonly used as it used to be even though the treatments have been refined.  I cant speak for the availiablity of ECT in other countries...regardless, this is a topic that you need to discuss with a physician.  A Psychiatrist would be knowledgeable on this and be able to access the proper treatment for you should that be the correct course of treatment for you.  So, in my opinion I think that is where you need to start your search.
You are more than welcome to continue to post here.  Take care
