In brief: Yes

Without treatment, which is highly technical and also requires excellent around the clock nursing care, this condition can cripple and kill.
Modern treatment should stabilize the nerve paralysis and shorten your hospital stay. You will need a lot of information about this disease and the future issues of your case. Use the hospital stay to learn as much as you can, and maintain hope.
