it depends on the person. Some people, like me, decide to quit with the tests and the meds without trying eveyrthing and just get the surgery. Other people like to exhaust every single option before thinkign about surgery. A Gi will talk to you about it anytime, but they wouldnt' suggest surgery if you had only been sick for a week or something.
