Yep. This is exactly what happened to my friend's son: crooked penis and too small/closing urethra.

I just wish more people knew about this. So many mothers/parents circumcise just absolutely blindly, thinking their husbands, boyfriends, fathers, brothers, etc have all had it done, so it must not be a big deal. Of course not too many men want to bring up the topic that something is wrong with their penises, so I think this topic stays underground a lot of the time.

This is what happened to my DH too, only he had to have a new urethra "made" at age 5 He remembers it

The first circ I saw at work was botched pretty bad.

I am adopted. My adoptive father was unable to father his own biological children due to a botched circumcision. No surprise - he's supportive of our choice not to circ.
