My son was born 6 weeks early and they could not perform his circumcision at birth. He has the surgery next Monday. Has any other mom gone through this and if so, can you tell me how the recovery process went for you? Thanks!
RE: It is an actual surgery and he will not be awake during it. They are making a small correction called "hidden penis" and the circumcision is done with/for it. The reasons aren't important, I just wanted to know if anyone else had it done at my son's age and how the recovery process was. The reason they make them wait is because a baby under 6 months isn't prepared to handle anesthesia as well, so its a safety factor. I didn't realize so many people would be so mad/upset over this. It isn't like I "desire" for my son to have surgery, its just necessary. :(
