In my case it was fairly easy. I have CIDP but the progression of my case was similar to GBS. When I was discharged from the hospital early in 2011 I could barely walk with a cane (after a month at home using a wheelchair and walker). I was unable to much beyond rehab twice a week and resting up in between. And I was less than a year and a half from full retirement age of 66. The last is important, because of the lengthy recovery time. If you are ten years from retirement and expected to recover sufficient to work in a couple of years, then it will be more difficult.
