|The ped really just did a quick exam, and it's the only time he's looked under DS's diaper. I kinda figured that a urologist who specializes in babies would know what he is doing?
I wish that where the case but all most urologists are taught is how to cut it off. What he did while it didnt cause any damage was totally unneccissarry and could have indeed caused problems. Any problem would have shown up on the outside if it didnt their wasnt a problem. Most babies boys and girls strain a bit while urinating not sure why but they do.
|The next time was by a children's urologist at the children's hospital because the ped had found that the opening was not quite like it should be (hence why retraction was "only a little." It couldn't be retracted which explained, they said, the straining when he had to urinate.)
It isnt supposed to retract at all in a newborn it is fused to the head of the penis like the fingernail is to the nailbed. That is how it protects the glans. Any dr that dosnt know this is not up to date on their information.
Either way make sure that they dont sneak and do it again some dr never touch the penis until the boy hits a certain age when he does they start trying to retract when they never had before.
If you havnt done so yet a visit to the CAC forum would be a good spot to go to.
