Suggest Treatment For OCD

I had a hysterectomy almost 15 years ago. Shorthly after I began having extreme panic attacks leading to OCD I never had anxiety or ocd before, my life was normal. I have done hormone therapy, mental health therapy, exposure therapy etc. I have come a long, long way. However, I have never been the same and cannot seem to shake the ocd. Is there anything I can do that I have not tried...will I ever be me again?

HI
Thanks for using healthcare magic

OCD is chronic illness and it need continuous treatment in form of antidepressant with psychotherapy. With medicine and psychotherapy, you could control the symptoms, but if you want, you should be without medication or asymptomatic for rest for your life, it is difficult to say. Just do what you are doing. In case, you need any advise, you can ask.

Thanks
