    to go through vs to have gone through

    "I'm not surprised she looked so frightened. It was a terrifying experience to go through." Could I say here "It was a terrifying experience to have gone through."?

    Yes, you can, though I think you meant 'I'm not surprised she looked so frightened'.

    I think you could also say "to have been through".
