I sort of had to deal with it. Not in the hospital- there, the nurses asked if we were going to do it, I told them we were undecided, the next day, they asked again, I told them no- that was the last I heard.
Our ped is overly cautious (she recommended an ultrasound to check dds kidneys b/c she had 2 uti's by 18 mos and I took her in at 2 to see if she had another- turned out she didnt; she also referred us to a neurosurgeon b/c ds had his soft spot close early, at 4-6 mos- it was the early end of normal, but also could have been an issue, things like that).
She said ds had slight hypospadius and 'megameatus' that might need to be corrected by circ. We met with the urologist- he checked things out and asked if I wanted to circ- I said no, he said we didn't need to. If it became a problem later, we could discuss it then. I asked him on a scale of 1-10 how bad the 'problem' was and he said about a 1.
I then asked the ped how many intact males she treated and she said she came from Tucson, AZ, which has a high percentage of intact (she said that, I have no idea if it's true) so she's very familiar with intact males. So far, I trust her medical opinions, and anything that doesn't seem right to me, I check out. I've got no problem changing if something comes up, but so far, she's the best I've tried in 3 1/2 years of being a parent.
