I'm so sorry.
If your husband's accident was WC, and the ketamine was working for his pain, then it should be up to the Courts whether he is able to continue to receive the treatments. Do you have a good WC lawyer to fight for your husband to get the treatments that work for his pain.
I see a psychologist regularly. If your husband won't go, perhaps it would help if you did. RSD impacted my entire family.
Please take care of yourself. XOXOX Sandy

I'm new to the forum but have been reading them for a while. My husband developed RSD about 5 years ago after a workplace accident. It started in his arm/shoulder & after an angiogram it spread to his leg/groin - Now it's pretty much systemic. We've done a couple of ketamine treatments & he acheived some relief from them but due to the expense I don't forsee any more in the near future. Understandably he's been dealing with a lot of depression & anger but it seems to be reaching a boiling point now & I just don't know what to do. He's talked a lot recently about wanting to end things because he just can't handle it anymore. I've been trying for months to get him to attend a support group or see a counselor either with or without me but he refuses to go. His Dr had him on antidepressants not only for the depression but also to try & help him sleep but he's stopped taking them & says they make him feel sick. I'm afraid I'm going to come home from work one day & find that he's actually gone through with it.
I'm at a loss - I want to help him but he refuses everything I suggest. What do I do?
