jaydee. i just had a complete hysterectomy. i walked in healthy (for having gbs) and walked out with with a head cold, e-coli and several other bacterial infections. i was pounded with antibiotics for quite a while. the surgical recovery was slow, but i tend to push and over do anyway. it is very normal for a gbs patient to recover slower than a person with a healthy immune system. i also now wear a mask whenever going to a medical facility, since i seem to get sick every time i enter one. i am post gbs 5 years. just relax and let your body recover. stay well.
