My 7mo old son Andrew, was diagnosed with Hypospadias w/ mild chloree, when he was born. He was a month premature and wasn't feeding well. He was born by C-section and wasn't breathing when he was born for 1 min. His temp was low and he just had a rough start all over. He spent 20 days in NICU for feeding issues. He is due to have surgery on Dec 16th and I am an emotional roll a coaster of emotions. My son also has Hypotonia (low muscle tone) and even though he will grow out of it he still have issues with it now. Andrew has Occupational Therapy to help him with it but I am just scared out of my mind that something is going to happen when he goes under the knife. He's so little and I know it's better for him to get it done now so that there are no complications later. His opening is just under the head of the penis and you can't tell unless you are looking for it, but I just want to know if anyone here has had any regrets for getting this done at a young age or any issues after the surgery that I need to prepare myself for. How much pain do baby's this young feel??
