In brief: Variable

The myelin coverings of a nerve take about 4 weeks once healing starts, but the axon inside may recover at about .
1 mm daily. Yet, some delayed recovery may be due to a relapse or setback, and some pts do have a more chronic course, cidp, which requires more constant ivig. If indeed you had guillain-barre, and EMG can predict outcomes based on findings.
