Reply To: GBS but not typical onset

Why do you call it atypical? Plasma exchange is a good treatment, and you should be glad you have had it made available to you so early. Early treatment generally means better recovery. If you have a mild case, avoid losing the use of your arms and needing a ventilator to breath, and make a good recovery, you should consider yourself fortunate.

As for the central line (PICC?), I had a Quinton catheter in my groin for three weeks, and a PICC line for longer than that at the same time. Your situation doesn’t sound so difficult to me.
