Myasthenic Crisis Recovery

My uncle developed Myasthenial Crisis and was treated with IVIg for 5 days and now he is stabilising. We get to understand that the effect of IVIg remains for a specific period only. What would happen when the effect goes off? Will he again get into the crisis state? What are the ways to treat him so that he does not get into crisis again.
