Thymectomy and autoimmune diseases
I had a thymectomy in 1985 when I was 17 years old to treat myasthenia Gravis. I went into remission about 4 years later. After the birth of my first child in 1996 I was diagnosed with Sjogrens Syndrome and since then Rheumatoid Arthritis and Lupus. Has anyone else who has had a thymectomy for myasthenia Gravis been diagnosed with autoimmune diseases?
