CaliKate, good to know you have an eye doctor and that you have been, and still are, on steroids. As you know, everyone's recovery is different, but it may help you to know my history. Following GK, paralysis began Jan 24, 2017, I started immediately on prednisone for a week with no result. I then went on a decadron taper for the month of February. I still had no improvement in March, but on April 10th I started to get some movement back. By July I had good lid coverage of my eye and punctual plug was removed. In essence, I went from House Brackkman grade 4 to grade 2 over 3 months. My prior bout with facial weakness was in 2011 after a subtotal surgical removal and it was minimal from the start, grade 2. It resolved completely in a few months after one 2 week taper of decadron.
Just know that steroids do not necessarily have an immediate impact but they can work eventually in many cases.
