Reply To: Why Does Recovery Take So Long?

Hello xochi. Older age is a factor in recovery from GBS. Yet, as GH as alluded to, it depends on the particulars of your case. Factors such as initial diagnosis, time to peak severity and how soon treatment was initiated all play a role in recovery.

Regretfully, a small percentage of cases do not experience rapid or complete recovery. I do not understand the IVIG treatment. Did you have IVIG initially? Why, if you are receiving 5 consecutive treatments are they being given over 2 two days, two weeks apart?

Your recovery and prognosis is a topic you and your doctor should discuss. Perhaps you would benefit from a 2nd opinion. Talk with your doctor.

I do not know what I PLATO means.
