I wanted to follow up with results that my wife had with ECT at Mayo between June 13 and July 2-3. To recap: I brought 65-year-old, 95 pound wife up to Mayo as last resort. Two+ years of fog and inactivity beginning in 2020. Resisting all therapy & medication.
Began ECT on June 14, and continued 2-3 times a week thereafter. Enormous struggle for all involved at first. In particular, head administrator pushed it through when all was stuck otherwise could not proceed.
Gradually, Xinli began coming around. By end June, appetite and awareness had revived and she was discharged early July.
So for her, it was a success. Today very little memory of what happened, but active and eating, still trouble sleeping. Very indebted to staff at Mayo for making this happen. The best to all
