Reply To: How long for recovery

May 15, 2019 at 7:59 pm

I’m sorry that you and your wife have had such a difficult time. I’m curious about why you had to go through so many doctors… not blaming you, just wondering, but others have had similar experiences.

I know nothing about IVIG so I hope someone more familiar can help.

Recovery is quirky. “They” say it should take from 6 months to 2 years, but that is such a generalization (not taking into equation of how severe a case there was, how long it took from onset of symptoms to get diagnosed/treated, general health, etc). And that just refers to getting “functional”; there are residuals (numbness, tingling, others)that can linger.

Is there a center of excellence near you?
Are you on Facebook? Look into GBS/CIDP there. I avoided FB for years… wish I hadn’t.

Best wishes
