I was diagnosed with M.G. in October, 2006, and I’m S/P thymectomy (with thymoma) November 25, 2006. I want to learn more about M.G., by connecting with people who have it or who have been affected by it. I’m in great need of support, and I hope that, too, I can offer support to others.

At the age of 37 I was diagnosed with MG in Spet 04 after finding a thymoma. The surgery went well but I went into MG crisis about three weeks post surgery. I spent 11 days in the ICU and was released. I was doing great for about 8 months but once again I had another MG crisis in Novemeber of 05. Now I have been back at work for a year and doing great!! I am a single mother of two and without the help of my wonderful family and friends I don’t think I would have made it past the second crisis.

I just want to find other people out there who have this condition and hear their stories of survival.

I was diagnosed with MG 2 years ago. Had my thymus removed and felt better for a while but started going down hill last year. Last September I went on Prednisone and am currently being switched to Imuran. I just want to hear what other folks with MG are going through.

Hi,
My 20 year old daughter just got diagnosed with MG and I would like to hear from anyone who could tell me if they have had their Thymus removed and if it has helped or if they haven’t had it removed I guess and how they are doing? She does not have a growth on the Thymus and we do not know if she should have it removed so any information would be appreciated!
Thank you!!

I was diagnosed with MG almost two years ago and had a thymectomy in March 2006. I’ve tried IVIG, plasmapharesis, and everyone of the immunosuppressant drugs, but my IBS has made my stomach not able to tolerate them, so I live with the symptoms. It’s completely changed my life since I can’t work anymore. I try to go to school part-time, but that exhausts me and my brain power just isn’t the same either. The heat is also one of my triggers, and I live in Arizona—not the best scenario, but there’s nothing we can really do about it right now, so all in all, I just try to deal with life on a daily basis although I do get depressed sometimes and severely depressed occasionally when life just seems too difficult—but no whining. I try to think positive, and I’ve been using self-hypnosis for many of my pain issues and that seems to help, so one day at a time. Thanks.
