Another round given from 4th November to 9th November 2018. Sfurther detoriation after that. She is complete paralytic except eyes movement and that was not the case. On ventilator support since 2nd November. Can plasma exchange be a good option. Otherwise what treatment options we can exercise.

      Hello Bharat, how Is your mother doing? My 68 year old father was just diagnosed with GBS, he has been in the ICU for 8 weeks with no improvement. He is able to move his eyes and mouth but paralyzed from shoulders down. He has had plasma exchange and IVIG, treatments have not helped.
