Now, would you think that parents who have this problem would be PISSED that they were not told how common this IS. Some are, like Peppermint, pp'er- thank goodness for your pedi, and for having the courage to make a change.
Of course in many cases, the doctor probably circed them or is pro-circ, and isn't going to confess this now, so pretty soon this parent is telling other parents-to-be, "oh, yeah ,adhesions, they weren't that bad".
Often the experience convinces them: "thank goodness I didn't leave him intact because of all those adhesions he would have had if he had the foreskin"-- because the doctor tells them to rip them back, instead of leave alone.
Then many pro-circers try to promote loose circs as the worst of both worlds and rush to convince the mothers to re-circ, because "why have a circ without the benefits (cleanliness/looks) of a circ?" and on and on. And there are enough mothers who have had this problem (which is heartbreaking) to post that their son was re-circed and 'everything turned out fine'. (Let's not forget the dc is not yet grown up, so how would they really know).
The worst is that on some pro-circ boards certain people use all this to explain how being intact is so horrible.... because the extra skin adhering is the foreskin and they attribute the pain of adhesions to having a foreskin, etc- needing to clean the loose areas extra, for example.
You would think this issue would help convince people to NOT circ, but sometimes it seems to backfire when misguided people apply the situation to intactness.
