I know this is a hard subject to talk about but can you tell me. If circumcision is still done in other parts of Australia. I'm from Launceston, Tassie. All the Dr's that did the operation has just stopped doing them on babys. He use to do them up untill they were 6 wks old now if you want it done you have to wait untill there 18mths old.
A lot of people have very strong opinions on the matter so i find it hard to get answers. I have my 3 boys done when they were about 1wk old. I stayed with them and the most painful part for them was the injection to make it all numb. It took about 30 minutes to do start to finish i took them all home and they were'nt in any obvious pain i did'nt have to give them panadol or any thing and was 100% happy. It seems like it's a rare thing in Tassie and my biggest worry is that they will be different than the other boys and get teased about it.
My husband was born in the generation when baby boys were done before you left hospital. When he was at Primary school there was a little boy who was'nt done and they teased him about it and one day the teachers found him in the toilet trying to cut it off with scissors. That worries me alot because kids are so cruel.
And feed back would be good
