I agree - the prognosis for GB is very good. I remember some nurse in the hospital saying to me - don't worry, I will not leave you - or something like that. Well, I did not see her again, I believe. I remember thinking I wish she had not said that to me - but I know she was just giving me reassurance. In the hospital on one of the first nights I was crying - and some lady patient in the room said "Oh, honey, it will be ok". I know I was sobbing not knowing what what happening to me - because I was paralyzed. She was right "things did turn out just fine." I have GBS about 27 years ago.
I have some weakness in my legs (not much strength) but I can dance, walk a lot - so I pretty much attribute that to old age. I have a friend with a truck that is pretty high. I cannot get into that truck very easily. I kind of get on my knee cap and get in that way.
