My son is circ'd. (I got to make the no-vax call, husband got the circumcision decision. I felt guilty for a long time; had to let it go & forgive myself b/c what's done is done.)
I've always thought there was something unusual about my son's surgery (a healed cut and a piece of skin connecting the penis shaft and the head), but he was my firstborn. So not only was I not confident about my opinion, I didn't press the issue with his surgeon, who told me everything was normal and healing fine. Doc didn't think I should be Googling about it and worrying myself over nothing. grrr to say the least.
6 years later...There *is* a mark/scar on the tip of my son's penis that my circ'd husband doesn't have, so it's pretty clear it was a nick. In addition, he definitely has a skin bridge. I checked this out after he complained of it hurting. [gut check...did I really forgive myself? I'm not so sure...*tears that he's hurting!!]
Anyways, I was looking up some info on the possibility of a relationship between a skin bridge and his pain, the need for (or not) repairing a skin bridge, and stumbled upon some threads regarding foreskin restoration.
Do you think repairing the skin bridge now would be more likely to prevent further problems...or cause them (psychologically speaking)?
Is a foreskin restoration something anyone would consider for a child? ...in conjunction with repairing a skin bridge? ...or is it best to leave that up to him when he gets old enough to make decisions on his own about these things? Would it be more successful if he's younger vs. older?
I don't trust doctors about this issue...Looking for advice...please help!
