I agree with your decision to have another opinion. The severity of GBS will vary from one person to another but from my experience it would seem very difficult to render a prognosis of the ultimate outcome in its early stages. Most cases I have known of, including my own, have undergone a slow recovery period lasting from several months to a year or more. Recovery is also quite varied with some achieving basically a total return to normal while others are left with some long term residual effects. My own case took about a year and I was left with numb feet but otherwise returned to normal.
