    It’s my understanding that thymectomies aren’t effective for mg patients who have had the disease for many years as opposed to those who have been recently diagnosed.

      Dear Danbee13, I spoke to Dr. Raymond.  He stated, “Factors that predict success include 1)response to medical therapy; 2) short duration from diagnosis to surgery; and 3) young age.  We will still perform in patients with longstanding disease but the efficacy is diminished.”  betsyRN
