My little boy is having surgery for a meatal stenosis. He turns 5 October 13th and the surgery takes place November 10th. How much should I tell my son about his surgery? It's a 30 minute outpatient deal and I've told him that the Dr is going to "take out his ouchies".
Also, I'm wondering how to be nice but firm with the Doctors? I just asked them permission to go back with my son while he has his procedure, waiting to hear back. I had a bad feeling about letting his first pediatrician take him back alone to do his circumcision, but didn't have a back bone then. I do now.
And just to clarify we circumcised for religious reasons, but didn't know the whole benefit of having a Rabbi do the procedure. I know there is a lot of controversy out there over circumcision, my family chose what is right for them. If you don't agree with it, please be kind in your response. Thanks friends :-)

If you are worried about how the treatment is with that hospital then see about going to another hospital for the procedure. By the way if you want to know a little more about the procedure here is a link you can check out. If you scroll down there is a "treatment" section that will tell you what they will do. I am sorry things have been this hard on you. I hope things look up. If you ever need to vent just send me a message. And update me to let me know how everything goes with the procedure.
