Hi and welcome to HCM,thank you for your query.
There is no need to be afraid of surgery since this is routine procedure today and recovery is usually complete and quick. Other therapeutic modality may be less agressive but also it is much more unpredictable and recurence is more likely to happen so i dont think you should take that risk.

Wish you good health. Regards.
