I agree with everyone...sue the dog crap out of this dr (is 'dog crap' one word or 2?). Then she'll be broke before she rots in the ever-lasting fires of hell for making money off of the blood of children. You're so lucky that your son lived through that surgery, thank god. Then you'd suing for something much worse than a botched circumcision. What she said sounds really
scary to me as it doesn't take a lot of blood loss in a newborn to be very bad
Don't be too hard on yourself. It's mostly the medical community's fault. Don't turn the anger on yourself. Yes, you should have researched more but when tons of drs say it's ok, you don't have a fair shot at knowing what's right. I mean, if it was so bad they wouldn't do it, right (oh yeah they would)? When you know better, you do better
. But don't have anything else done until you get a second and even third opinion. Right now you're so mad at yourself that you can't see past that, but once you're past that you'll realize how mad you are at that dr and the medical community as a whole for perpetuating such a horrendous practice for money, then
that dr won't know what hit her.
I haven't seen a pic of really loose circumcision or one in an infant/toddler, but maybe that skin hanging down is typical of that? When you say "skin hanging down" I think you mean frm the underneath part of the penis, not from the end? Or from the end but not in a sort of "tube" like with an intact kid, but more loose skin? Maybe that part isn't as unusual as you think.
