Circumcision done wrong

Hi,

 

I am wondering if anyone knows if a circumcision was done wrong, can it effect the infant's penis from growing properly? My son is going to be 7 in a few days and I am very concerned, We have asked the pediatrition and have been to an endocrinologist.

Do you know for sure it was done wrong or do you just suspect it was? (if so, how was it wrong?) It shouldn't cause him not to grow properly...it may cause his penis to slant one way or the other when erect, though.

I'm not an expert but I would think that if it was botched there could be excessive scar tissue or scar tissue in the wrong place that could possibly affect growth.

no,it won't affect its growth.

You need to see a urologist,not your pedi for questions regarding male anatomy

My sone was Hypospadius...thats when the opeing  is at the base istead of tip. He did not have a cercumsision.He had 2 repairs. The first one was botched. They just wait till he is alittle older so there is plenty of skin and place room for the repair. He will be fine. My dork son (now 18) loves to tell me everything works just fine. UGH! eye rolling

I have a friend and her son was done wrong. So a few months ago h went to the doctors and they fixed it.
He is 5 and it kind of effected him because he now thinks every time he goes to the doctor rhat something like that is going to happen.

Not personally but a friend of mine's son had an issue with it being done wrong and the skin grew over completly so he had to have surgery to fix the issue.

No, everything looks fine, it just doesn't seem to be growing much at all for almost 7. So I started thinking maybe it has something to do with the circumcision. No one else in our whole family, either side has had a probllem with growth. I just want to take care of it now before he is older. Maybe I should just make an appointment with a urologist.

Wouldn't effect growing. Can't say I have paid much attention to my sons' penis growth lol
