Detailed Answer:
Hello
Thanks for using Healthcare Magic for posting your query. I have gone through your question in detail and I can understand what you are going through.
Your son seems to be suffering from a serious mental illness called psychosis. People having psychosis often report such things that chops have been inserted and that they are being watched on and are being controlled. He would require an urgent consultation with a doctor preferably a psychiatrist who can strat him on antipsychotics, preferably olanzapine or risperidon. These would start working in 5-10 days and then he would do good.
Hope this helps,
In case if you have any further query do let me know.
Kind regards

Detailed Answer:
Hello
Convincing a patient of psychosis doesn't help.
He requires treatment. Start the treatment and he would himself disown his thoughts after a few weeks.
This will be a few years treatment.
Kind regards
