My wife had ECT treatment recently after 4 treatments there was a change from negativity to being positive about things, however after 6 treatments and a short gap to the next consultation meeting things changed back to feeling and speaking negative. Should a further 6 ects be considered or is there a tablet / treatment that might turn things around because after 3 months + in New Haven Ward at Bromsgrove I need her improvement back so that she can be out of Hospital. Help needed please . Mike XXX
Thanks for further help, Jill feels really down but is able to do things, the ward at New haven want her to continue her time at home and to try gently to get back into meeting family and friends but not to feel under pressure to do so. To do it when she feels O.K.to do so. She cannot think or speak positively about anything at present which holds back her recovery. We are due for a consultation meeting on Tuesday and I will mention your suggestion of SSRI to see whether that would be a benefit. Thanks for your help and suggestion. She is by the way already on Lithium at the level intended.
