Young sufferers of Parkinson's

My brother is only 24 years old. He was diagnosed with Juvenile Parkinson's at the young age of 17. He takes numerous medications and has had 3 surgeries thus far. The last one was pretty recent and everyone in the family was expecting a miraculous recovery, especially my brother. The surgery went well but results that he espected were not met. He has become depressed and does not do much besides sitting, usually in fron t of Tv or at computer. His strength has been leaving him. I am hoping to find someone who is going through this as well.... someone young like him maybe. I think it is hard for the family to understand when we have not gone through this. Any reply is welcome. Thank you!

Re: Young sufferers of Parkinson's

Can you tell me what medicines he's taking and how he's doing now? Tell him that new and better medicines will be coming out in the future. Maybe he'll feel better if he has a girlfriend or go to church.
