bad circumcision, what are my options?
I just started posting today so I figured I was on a roll and would run this one by everyone. I just wrote this email to Dr. Harold Reed to try to get some info, even though I am going to the doctor in a few weeks I have been impatient to find out what is wrong (and if anyone knows anything about this doctor please chime in, I am in florida and would make the trek to miami to see an expert after my first experience). here is the email:
I was circumcised due to phimosis and the job was not done very well. The scar is uneven and sloppy and I believe some kind of subcutaneous layer of tissue was not cut and it is bunched up under the skin since it is longer than the skin on top of it. I thought at first it was swelling due to surgery but it obviously isnt 18 months later (I am still on my parents insurance and due to some financial problems I have not had insurance since then nor the means to pay out of pocket). It gets sore, looks weird, and can cause discomfort. Have you dealt with this before? I am looking to get it fixed and have the scar look less sloppy and I feel going back to the same surgeon is the wrong idea. Let me know what yo uthink. Thanks.
I know some of you are MDs here so I thought I would ask.
And another thing - is this malpractice? I am not looking to make a quick buck but rather would greatly appreciate an arrangement where I wouldnt have to shell out for things that should have been done right the first time.
