I'd actually been writing a blog but wanted to cross post here, so that hopefully, my experience, could/would help someone else going through the same thing.
I'm actually 9 days post surgery at the moment, so I'm going to have to back-date these posts - apologies for that. I'm actually writing this on 16th June 2010, not 6th June (the day before my surgery), but I want to have this all dated correctly, ie when it actually happened.
I'll probably post an entry or 2 a day until I catch up to real time.
I'd like to say from the offset that I am 100% anti "automatic" circumcision for newborns, and am grateful that my parents didn't have me cut as a baby (I'm in the UK, so this would have been "out of the ordinary" for over here anyway). I strongly believe that a boy or a man has the right to decide what happens to his own body and no-one should take that right away, but I don't want to turn this blog into a pro/anti routine circumcision debate, and I'll close it down if it starts to head that way with comments.
Hope this interests / helps someone!
