Circumcision Videos

"I wish I had done more research"

"Spent most of the day yesterday at the ER with our 3 day old baby boy waiting for a

surgeon to fix his messed up circumcision. I don't understand how such a simple and

routine procedure could go wrong. Thank God the dr thinks he should heal up just fine and

not have any permanent damage. I'm trying to decide if we should go talk to the

original surgeon, who was a complete jerk to me before the surgery, and demand 

an explanation or just be grateful that everything is okay now and move on.

I wish I had done more research, I didn't even know there was more than one type. When

we got to the hospital for L&D, they said when the time came we could talk to the 

surgeon about the different types and make a decision based on that. So when the surgeon

got there Saturday he just sent the nurse to get H, and I asked to speak with him first. He

 was a complete jerk to me and just said that's the type he does. When I asked him what I

 need to know, what to look for, and how to take care of it he answered with pure

 annoyance in his voice ”nothing.” I asked the on call pediatrician and the nurses the same

 questions and they all said we didn't need to do or know anything" -Anon
