DS was circumcised a week ago. They used the bell method. Now it has fallen off and doesn't look like the picture they showed us. The entire penis is pushed into the skin around his penis, so you can barely see the tip of the head. I was wondering if any other mom's kids had this method and did it look like that when it fell off. I called the doctor and they want the doctor who did it to examine it because DS has a small penis and he said it looked like too much skin was cut and it could have possibly been cut into the scrotum. So my second question is has anyone had that happen?Answer Question

My son had the plastibell and I can't see how it possibly could have cut into the scrotum. Join the proud moms of circumcised boys group and ask your question there. If you ask here you will get misinformation and people will bash you for having it done. The moms in that group are very knowledgeable.

Stop trying to scare her!!! The chances are damage done during a circumcision are very small. And the the plastibell method involves less cutting than other methods. You have not damaged your son.Chances are that's what his penis was like before the surgery. He could just be cold. Put him in a warm bath and see what happens. And it sounds nothing like an infection.

"I cannot fathom it. if my son were told he had a small penis to begin with i certianly would not go about removing MORE OF IT!! GOOD GRIEF what people do for vanity."
For vanity? Really? Some may do it for that, but not most. Your answer is ill informed and flat out mean. If you think removing the foreskin made the penis smaller you need an anatomy lesson.

Sati, this is the second post I've read in 5 minutes where people were complaining about your mean responses. No matter the topic you seem to go out of your way to be harsh.
