Thanks, Index & Possum, for keeping me from drying away on the vine here!
I have a website that tells all abt this procedure. I believe the site would meet w/brd approval, but think I should run it by mod1 before posting it.
Basically, this procedure has been done on abt 22,000 people to treat epilepsy. Patients reported that they received mood elevations from the Vagus Nerve Stimulator that had been implanted under the skin of their chests. Sooo, they started doing studies on using the same implant to treat chronic depression that hasn't responded to other therapies.
The implant can probably be done on an out-patient basis and take 45 mins to an hour.
scary, but interesting, don't you think? I mean, for people who have tried everything else?
Thanks for talking to me
