I am new to this group and so happy to find other people I can talk to. I am from a small town with no support. I travel over 1 hour to get to the hospital. Sometimes I feel like I am the only one going though this. I have been on ketamine for over 1 year for degenerative disc disease. My treatments consist of going in the hospital every 30 days for about 6 to 7 hours. I receive 75 mg of ketamine in a IV for over 6 hours. Pain relief last for about 4 weeks for the 1st 60 days and then it get to be shorter as time goes on until I have no pain relief. The Doctor then ups the dosage and I start all over again. I am afraid that I will use up the ketamine limit and I will have no pain relief.
