Default MG update aka thymectomy good

53 yo male at time of initial symptoms.
Developed occular symptoms Aug/Sept 2014, progressed to general mg in weeks.
Diagnosed Nov/Dec 2014.
Prescribed Mestinon 60 mg 2x per day (180 mg daily).
Blood test positive for acetylcholine receptor antibody.
Did my research, decided on thymectomy, my neurologist agrees.
Thymectomy performed May 2015.

Today, Jan 2018:

Daily Mestinon dosage 60-120 mg.
Symptom free without taking meds, but being a good patient and continuing to take my Mestinon. Remission soon, hopefully.

Default Update.

Saw my neuro last month. I've been mestinon and MG symptom free since 1/1/19. Doc says I'm cured. Cured and not in remission because of the thymectomy.
