Greetings-

I've had major depression for the past 2 years. The only thing that seems to make a difference is ECT. Just curious if there is anyone else here thats had a positive experience with vns...

Thanks to all

Hi Jayzeey,

There are some members who have posted positive results from the VNS for TRD.  Check out "Your Story" under VNS Discussions and I am sure you will find some of their stories there.

Also, please be sure and read the patient and doctor manual on VNS.  These are not given to us as patients until AFTER the surgery, so it is important you know all the side affects prior to making the decision to have this implantation.

Wishing you the best!

Hugs,
Cindy

VNS implanted July 2007 for Epilepsy.  Activated August 2007.  No success, so VNS was turned off in August 2008 and COMPLETELY removed (including coils) on Nov 25, 2008.
