Ok let me rephrase. The five years I was diagnosed before the surgery my only symptom was double vision and I maintained on mestinon only.

Since full sternal thymectomy almost 12 years ago my MG has progressed to affecting my speech, swallowing, arms and breathing. I have been on IVIG and prednisone and I am now looking at cellcept.

This is a very dangerous and misleading story. It leads people to believe the surgery is a miracle cure. It is not. Many people have the surgery(myself included) and show no improvement at all.

It is scary to me to think that such a large medical institution as Mayo would publish such a dangerous article.
