Hello all! We're having some problems and I'm looking for some ideas/feedback.
My 4 yr old has recently been wetting the bed, despite being completely dry at night for over a year. A couple of weeks ago he mentioned in passing that it hurt to pee, but then all was fine until Saturday night. That evening, my son was having a hard time having a bowel movement and there was much effort, pushing, etc. When he got up from the bowl, there was blood that had run into the water from his penis, and some blood on the tip. It's been like that since then...he says the tip of his penis hurts after the initial stream of urine is over, and when the urine's done there are some watery drops of blood that follow.
We went to the ped Monday morning and just got the result that, despite his symptoms of urgency, pain and frequent urination, it isn't an infection. The ped was very anti-circumcision and said to be sure not to let a urologist, if it came to that, pressure us into circ'ing. Well, now that it's not a UTI, the urologist is the next step.
Does this sound at all like separation? For the first time, when he pulls back his foreskin there's a little bit of the head of his penis showing. Is there anything I can do to confirm that it's separation before we get to the urologist? Any other input or advice?
Thank you all, for any help and just for being here.
