I had ECT many years ago - bilateral - 8 treatments. I can remember almost every detail surrounding each treatment--I can even remember what race the anthesiologist was! I remember the nurse and the warm blanket she put over me while I woke up from the treatment. However, my longterm memory was shot. I couldn't remember friends' names, movies I had seen just a month prior,etc. It took many years to "rebuild" my memory. I still have problesm with short term memory.

However, I've read that memory problems are not as prevalent with the unilateral vs. bilateral. I'd consider having it again if I had some hard evidence that memory problems would be minimal.
