Reply To: Question for going back to work

It was May 2013 for me as well. I think I was fortunate that I found myself in the hospital very quickly after my symptoms began. Beyond that, due to events I was assigned a neurologist (who had recently moved to the hospital I was in from UCLA where he had seen Guillain-Barre many times) almost immediately. I work as an Information/Accounting Director, and I was fortunate to be able to work remotely and do much of my job from the hospital, in-patient rehab, and home. I returned to my office at the beginning of July, although the nature of my job isn’t necessarily physical except for going up 19 steps. I realize it’s been a couple of weeks since there was activity in this thread, but I hope you have continued to improve and will be able to meet or exceed your goal of returning to work in January.
