Here's another two:
It looks like in many cases surgery is not necessary, and that it may correct itself with age and time. Maybe you could get some other opinions before you go through with surgery.
Why does the surgeon feel it is necessary? does he have any problems peeing etc? or is he concerned cosmetic-wise?
About potty training-- lots of little boys just sit down to pee. They have those little guards on the potty chairs.
I wouldn't want to rush into another surgery either.
I would hope that he may grow out of it as well, although "Buried penis" seems to be a complication of the surgery of circumcision.
You might want to check out the circ forum for information on the subject.
Best of luck,
If it were my guy, I wouldn't touch it at all. The risk of severing nerves and doing irreversable damage is just too great IMO. At puberty, the penis grows due to increased hormones anyway. Unless there is a hormonal component, his penis is just how it was meant to be.
Maybe you could ask this question of a larger parenting board. There could be mamas and papas who have had the experience of allowing their son to grow out of it. Also, I wonder if the experts on the Circ board here have any learning on this.
My son was 8 years old before I got a doctor to agree to send him to a urologist who diagnosed him with a buried penis. I wish they had listened sooner, but I am every so grateful for the work the doctor did on him and the hope we now have. I know as an adult, he is going to be glad we did all this. Don't give up, and keep pushing forward no matter how scary it is or how often you get pushed aside. MAKE SOMEONE LISTEN!! Donna
