We have a follow up with the urologist who performed the Circ in January. It looks like there is an extra piece of foreskin that was missed So Emmett will likely have to have it removed when we go in January. They did mention things like this can happen, I would rather have it dealt with now then have it become an issue to him when he is older. It is on the side of his penis below the head.

I'm sure it's a very simple procedure.
Is it absolutely necessary to remove it?

Poor Emmett! This must be a disappointment to you Christa and I agree it is better to get it fixed now rather than later. What a pity they know this can happen and yet they don't take more care to avoid it? Most of us circumcise for health reasons but cosmetics are just as important when you do it.

We've been lucky with Rob and Ryan, their circs look perfect. Two down one to go. Rich has his in a couple of weeks.

At this point the issue becomes cosmetic. I mean sure we could leave it, but as it grows it would look even worse and he would have a pink "bulge" so to speak on the one side of his penis. If it was me (even though I am not a man), I would not be comfortable with that as some would see it as a deformity I am sure (thinking from a woman's perspective).

I am glad I posted this as I know that I am not the only one who has had complications and I hope if anyone else has they feel comfortable here to talk about it

When the Doc sat us down beforehand he listed off all the potential risks (which they have to do by law here) and this was one of the little tidbits inbetween. He did say it was better to take not enough off then to take too much, as it can be corrected. That is not a job I want as working with such a small area must be hard. It could have been the method they used perhaps? Maybe the clamp was positioned a little off. Not that it makes it any better, but atleast we can get it fixed up now while he is an infant. I have a friend whose son was done with plastibell which is an entirely different method and she also had problems, so I guess it is just one of those things that can happen. Better now than later though, I do feel so bad for my little man but I will ensure they use the local and penile block again.

I noticed that Keegan isn't exactly "centered"... I wonder if they missed some skin. DH says we should bring it up at our 4 month appointment, but I also wonder if it's something he might "grow out" of. Poor Emmett!

Is it possible that they just left the frenulum?
