My son is 16 months old and is uncircumsized because we chose not to. He was running 104 degree temp last night so I called the doctor and he told me to take him to the ER. They decided they needed a sterile urine sample so they had to do an "in and out cath."
Well the nurse had never worked on an uncircumsized boy before. She didn't know that you can't retract the skin so she tried, didn't get it and called in another nurse. He starts lecturing me about needing to start forcibly retracting his skin and how it's best....blah, blah, blah...I've talked extenisively with my pediatrician about this and he says NEVER forcibly retract the forskin and to wait until it does so naturally.
Anyways...long story short they had a hard time getting the cath in. Now my son's penis is REALLY red and he's SCREAMING, walking around holding himself. He also hasn't peed since the did the cath.
IS THIS NORMAL? WHAT DO I DO?!?!?
