Stastical chances of getting GBS a 2nd time.

Well, it’s not only a question of getting GBS a second time. And, folks here have reported it happened to them.

It’s a question of getting GBS after surgery.

The internet is not much help on this subject. The NIH says, “[I]Occasionally, surgery or vaccinations will trigger the syndrome.[/I]

Well, people occasionally get struck by lighting, or injured in an automobile accident or flooded out in Fargo N.D.

For myself, I consider the chances extremely remote. For the one it happens to, that’s no consolation. I would not avoid surgery for that risk alone. Heck, you can undergo surgery and…… you fill in the blank!
