I have two intact boys, and my second, who is now eight months, has a very tight, very long foreskin. There is NO WAY anyone could 'visualize' the urethra, let alone stick a catheter in it. However, he MAY need surgery on his lung (if the CCAM is too big). I am concerned that catheterization may be part of the surgery/week long recovery and wonder if anyone has experience with this situation. My two sons' foreskins are SO VERY different, and I was also wondering about people's long-term experience with a foreskin that is so small that the opening is really no more than a little slit. Any help would be appreciated!
Question about tight foreskin and potential catheter
I hope your ds dosnt need surgery so you wont have to worry about it
they tried to put a catheter in my ds2 when he was about 5 weeks old casue they wanted a sterile sample. they were very surprised that i wouldn't leave my son while they were doing it. they ended up giving up becasue he had a tight foreskin. I was standing over ds2 very mama bear ish so i think i was intmidating them a bit but i wasn't going to let them damage my son. ( our hosptial visit was a big hassle and I drove the nurses nuts casue i refused to leave my sons side for any reason. and if i had to go to the bathroom i locked our door--had a private room)
I hope things work out. I would make sure whoever is going to put one in your son has experince and knows what they are doing
Yeah, they could weigh diapers or place a bag.
