I am Arjen from the Netherlands. I got sick during my trip in aussie. I suffered from a herpes simplex and received medication for it. this was on April 1, 2017. after about 2 week I started to walk bad. did not feel well and had problems with peeing.
i went to the hospital and they check me and send me back to the hostel with a catheter. had it for 3 days and they putt it out. but 1 week later i was steel feeling very sick and everything deteriorated. on April 23 I had to go to the hospital again because urinating was no longer possible. walkin was very hard and i had zero energie.
2 days later i was complety paralyzed. i could only turn my head. I have been treated with steroids and 11 x plasma exchange.
i spent 8 weeks in hospital. then they flow me back to the netherlands. Spent 2 weeks more in hospital and then to rehab 4 months.
5 months later I was able to walk a short distance (20m) with a walker.
now 2 year later i am able to walk max 1500 m with a cane.
i am still improving but very slow.
I wonder how long u are recovering and do u still feel improvment after long time ?
