We had our son circumcised at birth and from the moment it was done we could tell not enough was taken off. My O.B. came highly recommended for prenatal and delivery, just not circumcision. We told our pediatrician, who no longer performs circumcision, we were uncomfortable with our O.B. doing it and we told the nurses of our concerns as well. The O.B. on call refused to do it, not to step on anyones toes, and our pediatrician/nurses talked to us and assured us that our O.B. would do a fine job, that they had lots of experiance with her and that every situation is different. So we agreed. Well that was a horrible decision. My son is now 10 months and the skin is beginning to grow back and is causing small sores when we pull the skin back. His pediatrician said to put neosporin on them and at 12 months is going to be referred to a urologist for re-circumcision. I feel absolutly horrible and don't want to subject my baby to that sort of trauma. Has anybody had an experiance like this? What are your recommendations?
