Ketamine in anesthesia cocktail - really helpful!

Hey all,

I had an embolization yesterday (they were successful this time!) and I had an amazing anesthesiologist who suggested we include ketamine in the drug cocktail to put me under. It’s just my anecdotal experience, but while I’m still in a lot of pain - I think the ketamine has been really helpful to manage it from the offset. Just wanted to pass that along for anyone else who struggles with post-embo pain!


I was given the same and it worked well. Surprised me and seemed so odd but I’m pleased they did. Definitely worth checking out if an embolisation or sclerotherapy is planned.
