Hi everyone. Im just wondering if anyone has any advice about a delicate topic concerning my son who is nearly 5.
I recently took him to the docs as he was complaining of pain when he was going for wees. The doctor concluded that he did have an infection and prescibed him some anti-biotics. However this is the 2nd time that he has had this problem and the doctor said that he thought that my son's foreskin was quite tight and that potentially he may need to be circumcised as he believed the problem would be re-occuring. If im honest, Im very reluctant to do this. As his mum, I want him to remain 'whole' and dont like the idea of the surgery. However, I obviously dont want him to have regular problems with this.
Just wondering if anyone has experienced the same problem. Any advice would be greatly appriciated. Many thanks, Rowena xx
