circ "redo"

Fourth you ask? Your body is still full of pregnancy hormones as you adjust to life sleep-deprived with your new baby outside your womb.

circ "redo"

Postby kuetoo73 » Wed Mar 03, 2010 2:35 pm

My DS is 4 months old, and we might have to have his circ done again - it seems they didn't take enough off the first time. Has anyone else been through this? I have no idea what to expect (ie. how painful it will be for him), and am SO MAD this wasn't done right the first time when all he did was eat and sleep! Now he's moving all around and its bound to hurt him more!

i don't know anything about circing but i think i remember hearing that there are different degrees of circing? like varying amounts of skin that can be removed....he might be fine.

You don't HAVE to have it done again. You could just leave it alone.

I agree that it will be painful for him, why put him through it twice? If you didn't notice, no one else will either.

I've read that the amount taken off these days is less than years ago.

What makes you think not enough was taken? And what makes you want to get it done again?

I'm super biased since we don't circ. But I would just leave it, it may not be a huge deal, and as long as it isn't bother him, why put him through the pain again?

Our pediatrician thinks it was done improperly. She noticed at his two-month visit, gave it time until his four-month visit, and then told us to have a urologist take a look. We have a consultation with the urologist tomorrow.

Sorry that your Ds circ didn't turn out right. I have read that they tend to take off less skin these days when they circ. My Ds ended up getting adhesions, so now some of the skin is fused over the head of his penis. Kind of hard to explain. We may need to get his fixed as well. We can't clean under it and it gets kind of gross. sorry if TMI! I'm wondering if your LO doesn't have adhesions. We're going to a urologist at the end of this month. My ds is a year, so I'm so worried its going to hurt a lot a well. :(

My DS had adhesions as well and our pedi told us to gently pull it back as not to tear it, but to pull the adhesion apart. It may sound morbid but it actually was pain free for him and only took 5 minutes. I have to keep pulling it back/cleaning it every so often to make sure it doesnt re-adhere.

Once there older, out of newborn stage a few weeks old, the Circ- is done as surgery not like the initial circ. My son didn't get his circ till 3weeks old because of being in the NICU and the dr. said if we would have waited any longer he would have needed to see a urologist to have it done as surgery because he would have been too big for the in office tools used.

It wouldnt hurt for you to at least make an appt with the urologist and see what they say. They may tell you it's fine. If he needs something repaired then you could ask about the procedure and pain level involved.

did your pedi say that it could somehow cause physical damage to him, now or down the road, if it's not fixed? because if it's just for cosmetic reasons, maybe it's best to just leave it alone and let him decide later if he wants to get it done.

My son is circumcised and I agree with this.
