My circ'd ds had this when he was around 3 or 4. He would scream. So, it was clearly painful. His screaming spells were unpredictable and as he did, he begged for his penis to stop hurting. I took him to the doctor. The doctor blew me off, "Oh, he has plenty of skin, I don't know why this would be happening...". Typical, they all have to defend one another you know.
: Ds's scar is near the base. The circumciser skinned his entire penis.
As a result it was buried till his screaming spells occurred. I can understand your concerns about the doctor not taking this seriously. This went on for weeks. Then, it just stopped. I'm worried that this trauma caused his penis to go numb. I've heard of this happening to circ'd teens who go through a growth spurt. One guy (he was an adult when he told me his story) said he has no feeling on one side of his penis because of this.
Ds knows about restoration because he saw dh restoring once. That's another thread, basically dh is restoring for me (wrong way to go - I'm thrilled he wants to do this for me but when a guy does this he should do it because its what HE wants to do - for him. There is a lot more commitment involved. Dh is no where near motivated, he does it if I mention it to him. Dh is in his 30s and already has ED (began a month ago), no drive, zero libido and doesn't seem to care either. He has always lacked interest, how we ever got pregnant is a huge surprise.
Anyways, please mention the possibility of restoration just before he hits puberty because he will have another growth spurt and could go through this again.
I'm sorry this is happening. Its heartbreaking to see your child in pain.
Congratulations on your newest addition!
