I’m new to GBS I’ve only had it a week… Spent 7 days in the ICU 5 of which I received an IVIG… been out only 3 days…10days with GBS altogether … I must have a had a mild case… only had numb/tingles in my hands and feet plus my eyes were droopy….I started to feel better within 2 days of the IVIG… I feel very lucky!! The only issues I had at discharge from the hospital were a slight numb/tingle in the very tips of my fingers and toes… Otherwise I feel perfectly fine… So I went with a friend to the beach in the evening yesterday. I sat just watching as he surfed. I was digging my toes into the sand enjoying the stimulation, breathing deeply the salty sea air, and just enjoying being out after being confined to practically bed rest for 8 days. By the time I got home from the beach I realized I could feel the tips of my toes and I truly feel it is from digging them in the sand. I think the beach is a great way to get rehabilitation! :rolleyes:
