Hi and I am so sorry for your daughter, she is young and to have to be looking at making this decision is surely difficult for her.You did not mention if Mayo suggested the surgery? Wondering in you are in MN and if you are have you had her to the U of M?I know you will hear both sides of the spectrum on surgery, versus diet and medication. It is a tough decision but in the end with the inforamtion you have you can sit with your daughter and talk it through. She may want to try the diet or meds first. Again I am not the patient or the physician so I am only sharing my humble opinion and lots of support to you and your daughter.
