I can't believe the doc automatically said to circumcise, especially a urologist. There is a cream that can be put on to pull the foreskin back. If they try to throw out a circ again and you feel that you need to do something ask for the steroid cream. Trust your instincts!

I would second the suggestion to read "Ballooning in the Intact Child" http://www.drmomma.org/2011/06/ballooning-in-intact-child.html If ballooning were to occur *after* puberty, then it would be an indication that the prepuce needed to be stretched a bit manually with steroid cream (or in very rare cases a slit could be made in the end if it was causing pain for a young man). But in babyhood - especially at 8 months - it is normal for the prepuce to be tight (and healthy as this keeps fecal matter and bacteria away from the glans and urinary tract). Ballooning at this stage is a normal part of the separation process and it certainly isn't cause for concern if a baby is not in discomfort as a result.
Welcome to MDC. I hope you'll stick around. I'm curious about what brought you here.
is what I thought when I read the above. Poor baby. It sounds like it had to have been very painful, in addition to the pain of being circumcised in the first place.
