I was recently admitted to hospital due to depression and anxiety because to be honest, if I hadn't have been admitted I probably wouldn't be here so I have no problem about the hospital. I reluctantly had ECT. I have had it before a long time ago and it didn't work for me then and it hasn't worked this time either. What it has left me with is dropped foot which means my ankle won't go to 90 degrees so when I take a step, my toes land first. I now have to wear a brace,which on top of everything else is the icing on the cake. It is caused by damage to a nerve behind the knee and whilst you are given a muscle relaxant with ECT, I cannot think of any other cause. Has anyone else experienced this?
