Here's the back story. My son is uncircumcised and Friday at a sick appointment the Dr retracted his foreskin prematurely. I have already spoken with a nurse and have the information I need to file a formal complaint. And I have an appointment to talk to his primary pediatrician.
Well his diarrhea has started having quite a bit of mucus in it and completely watery and his wet diapers are decreasing and he hasn't been eating as well. Just since friday . I am waiting on a call back from his Dr and I plan on making it very clear his foreskin is to not be retracted.
What if they want to chath him? How do you properly cath an uncircumcised infant without pulling back his foreskin?
He also has 2 tiny tears in his foreskin as well.
Is he still drinking? He sounds dehydrated, and mucus in his BM could mean c diff. I don't know why they would have to cath him, but if they did, to do it properly they would have to retract the foreskin.

I thought you could only get c diff from having a reaction to antibiotics?
My mom got it last year from having a bad reaction to clyndimiosin(sp?)
Would he need to be hospitalized if he has c diff?
What would they do if he is positive for it since he's only 10 months old?
He hasn't been on any medicine except for Tylenol to keep his fever down. It has gotten up to 102.2 which is when we took him to the Dr. He only has 1 kidney.
Sorry for the long post. Just concerned. The Dr has called back now I am just waiting for the nurse to call now.
