Hi there;
   I am so sorry to hear that your son has Muscular Dystrrophy. As far as I know there is no surgery that can help him. The muscles in his young body begin to contract and surgery would make it so hrd on him. My oldest baby was born with Wernig Hoffmans Syndrom, a severe form of Muscular Dystrophy. She was in the hospital the whole of her young life. If you have a Shriners Hospital in Malaysia
, contact them, they are wonderful. Again I am so sorry that he and you are going through this.

gentle hugs
