Just as I logged onto Facebook today, I was notified that somebody tagged me in a post.
It took me to this. (Original poster's name has been blanked for privacy.)
one of my blog posts and used it to reference yet another possible risk or complication of male infant circumcision.
Here is the text from the Facebook post:
"My son's pulmonologist asked me if he was circumcised. (He's not) When I asked him how that was relevant he replied "Circumcision can cause a lung embolism" I said "He's almost NINE! Wouldn't that have happened during, or sholtly after the circumcision?" He said "Not at all. The trauma of circumcision can show up years, possibly DECADES, later. People never want to see the connection."
Of course, this is only from a post on Facebook and I need more sources to confirm that doctors are asking this, but the point is, this could be yet another adverse effect from an elective, non-medical procedure.
One can only hope the AAP is keeping an eye out.
And perhaps they are, but only to cover the backsides of their members, a great majority of whom profit from the procedure.
