Hello all,
I have not been here in a long time, but I saw this thread while googling the recent AAP statement.  Since a lot of posters on here are having kids or know people who are having kids, I...

Peron is giving perfect advice.  I also absolutely agree that the foreskin should not be tempered with because all you have to do is leave it alone.  The problem is that when physician touches the...

Then what should be advocated on this board is a "hands off" policy, not a "non-retraction" policy because those two are very different.  Clearly, there is no specific definition of retraction and...

Well, I am guy, and FWIW, I never had any issues.  Nobody ever gave the foreskin two thoughts, including my numerous health care providers.  The foreskin is a non-maintenance appendage if you...

And where does this definition come from?  Because by just touching the penis, you can slightly move the foreskin back toward the body and visualize the inner foreskin.  That in my opinion should...

Kids tug on their foreskins all the time.  It's no big deal.  So, don't be surprised the doctor might have gently done the same to simply visualize the urethral opening.  If you don't want that to...

I also agree that it's a little long and patronizing (e.g.: level of vigilance, etc).  Your tone makes it sound as if you are the know it all expert and he/she is clueless about patient care.  For a...

Wow, it's remarkable how professional you were and how unprofessional that physician was.  To begin with, if you are anti-circ, dealing with this kind of situation, pre-op or post-op, is unsettling...
