hi Recovery from transverse myelitis usually begins between weeks 2 and 12 following onset and may continue for up to 2 years in some patients. Some patients may never show signs of recovery. However, if treated early, some patients experience complete or near complete recovery. About one-third of people affected with transverse myelitis experience good or full recovery from their symptoms. Another one-third show only fair recovery and are left with significant deficits. The remaining one-third show no recovery at all, with marked dependence on others for basic functions of daily living. Treatment is usually symptomatic only, corticosteroids being used with limited success as doctor can give only symptomatic treatment only.chance of recovery can not be predicted by any means.
