I have had both types of stimulators implanted over a three year period. Neither has worked. I have had all kinds of injections, even internal (vaginal) which were so painful I couldn’t continue. They worked for a few days. My Dr wants me to undergo in hospital Ketamine treatment but my insurance will not cover it. The cost is around $20000 which I can’t afford.

Hi Painplus can I ask why you think on both occasions it was unsuccessful? Did the doctors give an explanation to you? Have you had PNE for long time?

Why would ketamine infusion cost so much? And isn’t it only a temporary measure? Can you bargain with the hospital to see about getting a lower price perhaps?

It’s so expensive because you have to be in the hospital for 4-5 days. The infusions take four hours each. I think it’s probably the cost of the hospital. They do not negotiate.
