I had a bad case in 2014, going from healthy to a ventilator in 1/2 day. I was 4-months in hospital, 9-months in nursing home, & 5 months in rehab. Discharged in a power wheelchair. It took another 6-8 months to walk with sticks, which I stopped using about 6 months later. I no longer qualify for PT, so for the last 2-years I work 3-days per week with trainer/s at a private gym. Now days, dead weight lefts and squats with weight help build muscle the most. I am still improving incrementally. I retain some neuropothy in my feet and have minor hand tremors, which I think will stay with me. Stairs are still a challenge, but any kind of railing helps significantly.
