Nerve re-growth after Guilliaume Barre
I had Guilliaume Barre sindrome in 1974 and at the time (as well as afterwards) was told that where the nerves had "died" at the time of the paralysis, it will never grow back. Has there been any new development on the nerve / myelin front in medicine that might have changed that?

Louis, as far as I know there is no drug available that can reverse neural damage that happened 28 years ago. I’ll do some research and if I find out anything I’ll let you know. Good luck.
