    Hi Dawson: Yes, one definitely can make a full recovery from GBS. About 70% of patients recover full strength although some people do notice persistent fatigue. Unfortunately, recovery can be slow, taking up to 2 years. Pain also improves, in most cases completely. You are very early in the recovery phase, just 3 months from the initial illness, so it is not surprising that you still have some weakness and pain. You had the correct treatment (IV immunoglobulin) and are continuing to get physoiotherapy treatment so you are doing everything right. Keep it up and I would expect that you will continue on the road to recovery, hopefully complete recovery.
