you desperate, like me surgery was a good thing, it put me in remission for awhile, so don't discount it as a bad thing, think positve that if your son has surgery, it would put him into remission, I was 20 when I first got cd, and just beginning my career as a horse jockey, I was down for a year but after surgery i was racing within 3 months after my last surgery, I got 17 years remission out of that.

Surgery was the only option for me after trying some meds. Surgery saved my life! Only after surgery and getting the infection out of my body did meds start to help me and get me into remission. Yes, surgery is scary - I was afraid every time. My first surgery was when I was 23 and I had a 9 month old daughter and husband of just over a year at home. I cannot tell you how afraid I was, but I also knew I was very very sick and I was useless to anyone. I had to take pills to be able to get out of bed and get to the couch - I could hardly walk and I couldn't tend to my house or my child (thank God for my mom).
Your son needs to realize if he is trying everything to get better surgery is one of those things. It might not fix it right away and after being so sick getting better is a long journey - but he has to stick with it and keep his mind on the positive. I would focus on what all I was going to do with my family once I felt good and could get out of the house. I know you are a strong person or you would not have found Healing Well - this is a great place. Your son needs you - I could not have made it without my parents while I sick. Stay strong for him!
