Reply To: GBS/ CIDP?
Don’t give up hope! A year is not enough time to recover from such a serious case of GBS. Two to three years is what it should take to reach maximum recovery. Much of what you experience in residuals can get better. I had foot drop when I was discharged, but as it seemed to be improving a passed up an opportunity to get AFOs. Today I use no assistive devices at all, although I must be careful walking, especially on stairs.
There is a good chance you will be able to return to work if you have a good rehab program.
