It’s been 6 months since I had 10 infusions. And my life has changed dramatically. Before the treatments we had tried nerve wax, pain medications, and other stimulator trials. Nothing helped. None of my doctors believed me until they saw the progress I made. I went from not being able to function and get out of bed or even bathe myself, without the help of my boyfriend to now being able to do a lot of those things better. My moods and ability to talk and think are Worlds better.
Before my Ketamine infusions, my pain was a 9 or 10. I couldn’t do a lot of things. I couldn’t bathe, wash myself, dress myself, get to the bedroom or the bathroom. My boyfriend was my caregiver 24 hours a day.
During the infusions I felt I went so deep into myself. I worked through those things. It wasn’t until a month after the infusions, that I was able to face those problems. I smiled for the first time in years.
