Have your doctors tried C-Pap or Bi-Pap machines with your son? I'm on a Bi-Pap and it has changed my life without surgery. These machines are small and portable, and you wear a mask over your nose at night. Air is forced into your nose while you are sleeping, keeping your airways open and allowing you to sleep normally and deeply. I had no trouble adapting to wearing the mask, and feel like a new person.
