When I was discussing surgery with my neurologist, she brought up an opportunity to participate in a trial. It would study the effects of a thymectomy on MG patients. Some would have their thymus removed, others wouldn’t, but the patients wouldn’t know.
After discussions with my family and plenty of thinking on my own, I decided not to participate in the study. I wanted to guarantee that my thymus would be removed. Sometimes, I feel guilty about not participating.
What are your feelings about clinical trials? Have you participated in one? If so, what was your experience like?
