My subsequent post simply added the Z14.2 procedures for adults in 2010.

    The statistics I've provided have nothing to do with Medicare numbers or payment methods. Any adult undergoing a surgical procedure will be recorded in these numbers, including you .
    If you think I've made an error in my data extraction and analysis, feel free to do your own. What is not valid, however, is simply to assert it underestimates the number of procedures without providing any evidence.
    BenTas had a post about all the issues he had prior to circing, I don't think his was a ritual circ.

    His was a routine circ, according to his posts so far. No hint of any pathology, rather it was a matter of psychological issues, as he tells it.

    ... at the age where I was meant to be discoving sex and having fun, I instead became very self-conscious about my penis
    And that's okay. No one is arguing against the right of adults to engage in bodily modification.

    Thanks for clearing that up for me John, that makes more sense.

    In that case I'm not too sure what my op would have fallen in to. Bit of both? Regardless to this topic never the less.
