In brief: Depends

There is no telling how you personally will recover. It depends on the degree of damage done to your nerves and muscles.
Some changes may be irreversible. You may want to consult with a neurologist who may suggest nerve congestion study and electromyography to evaluate the degree of damage and the potential for reversal.

In brief: Usually excellent

Vast majority of patients recover almost fully, but time to stability varies, and speed may be secondary to whether ivig or plasmapheresis was used.
Rarely, some pts develop chronic immune neuropathy, but this too responds to ivig.
