Bipolar and ECT Treatments
I was discharged from Pine Rest inpatient hospital today and I am doing much better. But I still have short term memory loss, I have no idea when my memory will return.

Glad to hear from you, @mrser52, and that the inpatient time helped. Will you share, if you're comfortable, about what treatment you underwent while there?
As far as the short-term memory loss from the electroconvulsive therapy (ECT), perhaps @aarniek @sirgalahad or @jakedduck1 have some insights on that.
@georgette12 – how are you doing?
@renwald – did you have ECT?
I am so pleased that you checked-in with Connect, @mrser52. I'm glad you are feeling better. Did the staff at Pine Rest offer you any suggestions for getting your short-term memory back again?
