Myasthenia Gravis and damage to the eye muscles

Posted by @seashellgal in Brain & Nervous System, Jun 24, 2012

I was diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis in Fall of 2011, after having horrendous double vision and ptosis for a year prior. My left eye was operated on last summer and this coming Tuesday (6.26), both eyes will be operated on. Has anyone had this type of problem and how have your eyes been since surgery?
Due to a problem with my DNA discovered 7 years ago, my immune system has been so badly effected, that in addition to the Myasthenia Gravis, I also have Parkinson's Disease and Lupus. My surgeon and my neurologist have both positively confirmed that it is the M.G. that is destroying my eye muscles as well as other muscle groups in my body.
