I just recently got back from the Mayo Clinic up in Rochester, MN, where I went to get a second opinion on my diagnosis and treatment options. I spent about a week up there, had some additional bloodwork done and an EMG (which was loads of fun...). Anyway, I had a consultation with a cardiothoracic surgeon and he has recommended, based on the presence of a mass on the thymus, a minimally invasive thymectomy.
In addition, I had an appointment with my local neurologist today and he's increasing my IVIg treatments from once a month to every two weeks. This was done in part because my symptoms have been coming back over the last three weeks or so, and also in order to try and get my body more ready for the surgery (which is on February 27).
Has anyone had a thymectomy done through this method? Anything you would recommend or anything I should expect?
Thanks in advance!
