I also had the band. Mine was (and still is but much better now) around my ribs/diaphragm and made breathing difficult and coughing impossible. I called it my boa constrictor. 🙂

I think it’s pretty common. It does get better with time. I’m now 3 1/2 years past my GBS diagnosis and it is finally almost not noticeable at all.

My case was pretty severe, so you may improve much faster. I was also 57 when it hit me.

Welcome to the forum, by the way!
