Well. I'm glad you know me so well.
I also never bullied anyone. No sure where you got that from

This is total drive-by post, I've only skimmed, but I wanted to possibly shed light on the "anesthetic in the abdomen" part.

I give local anesthetic as a dental hygienist and I'm thinking this is like doing an infiltration around a specific tooth as opposed to a block. One blocks sensation just at the tooth, one blocks a quarter of the arch. I'm thinking the doctor did a block and numbed at the nerve ganglion rather than just at the foreskin.

I don't have a boy, but when my daughter was brought into the dr for a check up or even for a diaper rash no one was trying to man handle her bits, they didn't even spread her labia, let alone try and see "how far" her clitoral hood would go. This just seems like such a warped practice.
It is very warped. But, I believe it stems from a lack of education on intact male anatomy in med school. It is ingrained in society that foreskins are these nasty little creatures that suddenly turn on their owners without warning. Many doctors simply don't know to leave well enough alone. They don't understand that the foreskin will not retract most often until puberty.

This is true, but my son's testicles were already descended when she tried to retract him. Even if she was checking his testicles, she had no reason to handle his foreskin.

I totally agree. That is unacceptable behavior.

Not to mention, you stalk my posts on other threads in case you find a flaw in my story. You all are crazy! I will gladly be removed from here for calling you all idiots, but I can only hope the moderators see you all and how you're harassing me for simply talking on a thread, apologizing where necessary, and answering your questions enough that doesn't tell you everything about my life. Yet still having my child and myself "giggled" at.

The type of people you all are . . . Omg, such bad people.
The ladies here may have a different opinion if you would share actual condition. Alluding to "conditions" that require a child to be circumcised at so young an age isn't something most, if any, here have heard of. You have shared a lot of details without actually outright naming,or even describing, this condition none here have heard of. While I'm not saying that doesn't mean you are legit, I am saying that if you wish people to take you at your word, that most likely will not happen. Back up what you are saying with links/facts/names.


Also, it may help others considering circumcision to know who and where the doctor is that circumcised your son. Or what type of circumcision he is practicing. His circumcision method is vastly different than anything I have seen, or heard of, locally.


I'll continue to review this thread but do know that we do not allow name calling on this site. Women may not bully you either.

So far I have mostly seen people not understanding what type of condition would require circumcision and woman saying they have never heard of a painless one. You can easily inform them by sharing name of condition and name of procedure used to circumcise your son. Or link to actual facts/descriptions.
