no i haven’t had stem cell transplant. 3 1/2 years ago when i first developed gbs i had plasma pharesis done 5 times. i later heard my uncle a doctor telling another dr that i had the plasma done & he said it helped but i didn’t do as well as they thought i would with it. i had a very severe case of it, & was within a few hrs of having to be put on a vent. & i almost dided from the gbs & then another time from the vicoden building up a toxic tolerance in my system & was given narcon 2 times to get me to come out of neuro thought i would never get out of bed but i walk with arm cuff crutches normally. but im in a wheelchair some of the time due to a broken 5th metatarsal. i did this 1/21/10. it is slow healing bone anyway & the gbs makes it more slower because of the effects of gbs restricting the blood vessels. its just all been one big NIGHTMARE!!!
