I check in to THomas Jefferson in Philadelphia on 1/29 for my first Ketamine infusion and I’m nervous to say the least. I have been using the Ketamine nasal spray and sometimes when that hits me just right I feel completely high. I did two Lidocaine admissions at Methodist (at TJ) and they were horrible and I would never go back again. So I have some idea of what it will be like, but hoping for some further insight.
Do they allow your guest to stay overnight? I had terrible hallucinations with the Lidocaine cocktail and it was fine between 11a-8p when someone was with me, but very scary in those off hours.
Can you get to the bathroom without help? Weird, I know…but I’m really uncomfortable with strangers.
So shower is next. Do you even want to? Are you able? How often, because of the PICC?
Is there anything you wish you knew before you went that you do/bring that you can think of that might help me?
Thanks in advance,
