Update on my friend with Guillane-Barre'

January 10, 2013 11:25PM
My friend with Guillane-Barre' is walking with a walker now. They put him on 5 courses of IV gammaglobulin and physical therapy and little by little he is improving; this apparently is all the docs can do to treat this. A full recovery is very possible for my friend. The fact he is doing so well 40 days in is a good sign. He said he had no idea that a flu shot could cause GB and that he would never get another flu shot again. I asked about his sister who is still in a wheelchair from GB over 30 years later, and he said she got it after getting a series of vaccinations for travel abroad. In short, vaccinations can and do cause GB.. be forewarned! Also, my friend is not the type to be ill, has no allergies, is a normal healthy person, so there was no reason to think the flu shot would cause GB in his case, other than the fact that his sister got GB 30 years ago.
