Two year recovery time?

      Where did the 2 yr. recovery idea come from? And why do some people plateau at a certain point in their recovery? Is it because they have given up, or stopped therapy? I am at 30 months since my onset of GBS and I would estimate my function at 70% but my strength at only 40%. I work with resistance machines and cardio equipment, and I’ve noticed that when I make a strength gain of some sort that I usually improve on function in some area. I don’t see why improvement should stop as long as a person is able to work at it. Anyway, I would like to know how you all feel about it. Also, where is marc? I’ve missed his postings.

      marc is racer13. the 2 yr myth is from the uninformed medical community. no one knows how any one individual will recover. muscles need exercise to recover. nerves need rest. it is a balanace. take care. be well.
