So sorry this happened to your son. Your doctor is way off base in what he did and what he told you. Your son is fine. Keep an eye on it to make sure there is no infection from the retraction. Otherwise, if there's swelling or discomfort with peeing, frequent warms tubs soaks or sitz baths can help bring in circulation to help with the healing, and dilute the urine when he pees.
Here are a couple of links about why retracting is not necessary and potentially harmful. I would given them to your doctor with a note about why you'll be leaving his practice, so he doesn't put other intact boys at risk this way.http://www.kindredmedia.com.au/libra...ractions/401/1http://www.cirp.org/library/normal/http://www.healthychildren.org/Engli...No+local+token
The attorney for Doctors Opposing Circumcision, John Geisheker, will send a letter to the doctor/nurse/hospital pro bono (free) on your behalf telling them what they did was wrong and the consequences. It isn't a letter stating you'll sue, but it is not likely to earn you any friends at the doctor’s office. It is fully referenced and ought to get their attention, and should be very educational for them.
Email him at email@example.com
Before you contact John, you will need the following information:
The name of the doctor or nurse who did this, the name of his/her practice and their (snail) mailing address.
The name of the hospital where the doctor has privileges, (the hospital where they practice) and the mailing address. (even if it didn’t happen at the hospital)
The name of the CEO or Administrator of the hospital. (even if it didn't happen in the hospital, find out where the offending doctor has privileges and send it to those hospitals)
The name of the hospital's risk manager.
The name of the head of the department (OB, peds, emergency, etc.)
Baby’s name, date of birth, age.
Full detailed narrative of incident, what you were told, aftereffects.
Letters will also be sent to:
The state medical board in your state.
The Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations (hospitals fear them like a boogeyman)
