... surgically removed thymus gland? success??
I had the surgery in 1992, shortly after being diagnosed with MG. It didn't seem to work for me, though I was told that it should be removed anyway. I've been on Mestinon and prednisone
since, and had a plasmaphoresis, which did help some. I'm now 79 and still going! You have to learn to live with the disease, and make adjustments. I had to stop working in 1994, but have still lived a pretty full life!
