Reply To: Has any gbs patient used communication cards? Did they help?
Hi Kate, When I was in the hospital with GBS and had a trach so could not talk. I also could not use my arms and only had slight hand and finger movement so the cards worked for a while using blinking, but was not easy at all. The Letter board was the best, but it took a lot of patients on both sides as a lot of times I could not control what letters I stopped on.
Biggest thing is to be there and try the best you can.. It helps..
