After six years with RSD, the doctor is recommending ketamine infusion therapy, also called "coma therapy". I am wondering if any one has undergone this therapy and, if so, would you be willing to share your personal experiences?
there used to be a girl from austrailia who did that and from what i remembered she did really well...maybe some of the others that have been on here longer could tell you more..i just remember her speaking about it...
I am not familiar with this procedure and how it actually works, but I have been reading up about hyperberic chambers. I would love to do this because it has a high percentage rate of remission, but I am claustrophobic. Has anyone tried to avenue before? Would be interesting to find out. Ben
Claire, I believe the woman you're referring to is Kate. She gets the ketamine treatments, but the ones she gets is called the "awake" therapy. She is not put into a coma. That whole idea really scares me, but what do I know? Anyway, Kate is having another ketamine treatment right now after having had her fourth child so we'll find out soon how she did. She got progressively better results with each infusion.
Lucy,ask your doc about this technique and good luck to you.
