    wasn't even something that we considered or discussed when we found out we were expecting a boy. to me its seems as strange as considering female circumcision so was always a non-event.

    we then got our results from our scan and bub has slightly dilated kidneys - it normally resolves itself before birth or within the first 12mths, but at its worst it can cause UTI and if his foreskin is playing some role is preventing him from urinating medically it may sometimes be recommended.

    it broke my heart honestly to even have this thought in my head; to have to remove some of him but FX it will resolve itself /be manageable and we won't ahve to even discuss medical circumcision.

    It's unfortunate that you can't see the comparisons that were being made.

    There is no reason to remove ANY functioning, healthy part of the human body prior to a medical issue arising, 'just in case'. This includes gallbladders, tonsils, ears, labia, breasts and yes, foreskins as well.

    I don't think you need to get so defensive. WCM gave you a valid comparison.

    I wouldn't remove my child's appendix or tonsils at birth just in case... Why do it with a foreskin?

    Maybe if it had been compare to losing the very tip of ones finger ( no bone) then Yes I under stand but to compare a foreskin to a gall bladder umm no.... I've seen the recovery for both and to compare a operation where u are put under GA, sliced
    Open and an internal organ is removed to the cutting off of a foreskin is bloody stupid .

    I doubt anyone would offer you their opinion.

    On that basis alone it would seem like a poor idea, given a circumcised boy will be the "odd one out", and if it was not done therapeutically (ie to correct a problem), there is a strong likelihood he will strongly resent it when older.
    This ^^ My DH is circ but didn't want our DS done just because he is. Whilst it was standard back in our day, by the time DS grows up, the 'norm' will be intact.

    I won't push my views on you - what I will strongly recommend though is to look up the procedure on U-tube and watch how it's performed (including your DH). If after viewing this you still want to go ahead, then that's your choice as the parents.

    Umm, it's exactly the same. Your DH had medical problems, I had medical problems. Your DH is getting circ'd, I had my GB removed. We can both live happily without those body bits. Both body bits serve an essential function in the body. GB disease can kill BTW.

    You offered your DH as an example as a pro-stance to the op, I offered myself as anti-stance to the op. I didn't not shove my opinion down your throat and I am glad you will discuss this subject with qualified medical people. I fail to see why you are getting upset over having an opinion challenged.
