DO NOT RECIRCUMCISE; LANCE THE SKINBRIDGES
I found your site very informative and helpful. I thought I would share
my son's situation with you...and maybe receive your opinion on it.
My son is 1 year old, and at birth was supposedly circumcised. Enough
foreskin was not removed and he has continuously been suffering from
adhesions. He was just seen by a pediatric urologist yesterday who
has suggested not redoing the circumcision, but to release the adhesions
(I believe he used the term "lance" the adhesions?) with my son under
In situations like this...where the infant suffers from preputial
adhesions, do you feel it is best to completely redo the circumcision,
or to only break the adhesions? I found it very frustrating to have
to put my son through this since he was supposed to be circumcised
at birth, but to look at him, as the doctor said yesterday, the appearence
of my son's penis is that of a uncircumcised boy.
best wishes to you.
The ways of the US medic are in this respect something of a mystery.
I believe generally you can be thankful that your son received only
a partial circumcision .. some infants with the full circ. have too
much skin removed ...
Now humm ...adhesions can refer to two things: I believe what you're
talking about is skin bridges, could you refer to the short summary
skin bridges would need cutting i.e. lancing .... , your urologist
has in my opinion a good approach, in other words dont recircumcise
your son ...
Please tell me if they are not skin bridges.
thanks --- good luck
