Met with Doc #3 yesterday and things went very well - yay! She listened, took notes and agreed that the urinary frequency was unrelated to the foreskin, which she also agreed was a non-issue. She didi a urine test for UTI - neg. And a blood test for diabetes - also neg. She asked a lot of questions and in the end thought I should consider urinary frequency syndrome. It's basically a non-medical explanation for urinary frequency in post toilet-trained kids (avg. age 3-7). Usually, due to some trauma, kids feel an urge to pee as often as every 5-10 minutes. (Not there is any trauma I can explain, unless a road trip to Disneyworld is considered traumatic, and to a kid who prefers the home toilet, it may very well be!). So, on the way to school today, I explained to my son nothing was medically wrong with him and that if he had to go pee, ok, but there was no reason behind it; that his penis, his bladder, his blood, etc we're all ok. He only peed twice at school today so I think it's just a matter of him growing out of it, which is usually the case, although it can take anywhere from 6 weeks to 18 months! So my efforts paid off, I've found a new ped, and I wanted to also say how much I appreciate all the support from this board smile.gif - thank you!

I'm really glad it wasn't a serious medical problem, but I'm also really glad that your new Dr actually checked for those things.

Er, yeah, I would skip the steroid. My kids are 8 & 10 & don't retract yet. No worries. (Is that poll still around I started like in 2005, where the average age of first retraction was?) It's not their fault that the medical textbooks are so outdated in this country (though they really ought to research for themselves. I mean, if we can...) Anybody have a European medical database, for the Dr's to have a peek at?
