Myasthenai Gravis

My husband has Myasthenia gravis. He has a peg as he cannot swallow.
He also has diabetes. He is on steriods and his feet are swollen. Does he have a good chance for recovery.:

Re: Myasthenai Gravis

Our son is taking Mestinon medication for MG. Has your husband tried that?

Re: Myasthenai Gravis

Yes he was. He died on Tuesday and was buried on Friday.
He was 63 and had diabetes which made the situatiion very complicated.
I wish yr son all the best.
