Dose anyone know if it is safe to have ECT treatments when you have a intracranial meningioma brain tumor?

While I don't have an answer to your question I do recommend that you consult with a highly experienced neurologist before proceeding with ECT treatments. If you are near a university medical center or a Mayo Clinic that would be your best place to get a second opinion.
Just wondering if the ECT is being recommended for long term depression. If so, what other depression treatments have you tried?
Also, have you had surgery for this brain tumor?
