  • Doctors and restoration

    Who has bridged the conversation with their doctor that they are restoring? How receptive have they been? Has anyone had a negative reaction from a doctor? Is there any way to find doctors who are in support of it?

    Not me. Don't trust them one bit. Only go there if I'm broken. Fuckers!

      I was reading some doctor comments on restoration yesterday. One doctor rates its a bad idea because the ringed band can't be restored, and is a vital part of keeping dirt out of the foreskin. She might have a point - too bad it isn't possible to just move the foreskin and clean under it. Oh, wait, actually it is. Meanwhile I assume I am not the only person on this site who occasionally has had to pull fluff out of their urethra due to the inconvenient lack of protective skin to protect it.

      I haven't fact checked it, but apparently female circumcision was still legal in USA about 20 years ago. I also hear that there has been talk about legalising it to a small extent again. While male circumcision is absolutely appalling, female circumcision takes the cake for medical shockers.

      Interesting side note - a few years ago the WHO released the results of a study linking bacon to cancer, and many years ago the University of Chicago released a study proving the link between hot dogs and childhood leukemia. We clearly live in a messed up world when hot dogs and bacon don't come with warning labels, but circumcision (which provides benefits for roughly 1 in 16 000 people subjected to it) is considered to be a recommended practice because it may reduce your odds of getting cancer of the penis (which is one of the rarest cancers).

      A parody of the circumcision arguement put forward by doctors would be as follows: "A new cure that is 100% effective has been found. If you take 50g of pure mercury, any medical problems you have will be gone within a day. You will never get cancer, AIDS, or even the flu."

        I live in the UK. I have a restored "foreskin" that took me 12 years to grow. As well as all the physical and mental benefits my restoration brings me, my penis looks natural – uncut. At 71 years of age I am getting some erectile problems. Not wanting to lose the sex from our 50-year marriage, my wife encouraged me to visit our doctor. Our GP is a young woman who I have a lot of respect for. I was hoping just to get a prescription for Viagra, but instead I got a full check up. She did ask if I wanted a male doctor, but hey, what would you do?
        My pants off and her rubber gloves on, she checked the way I was hanging, examined the balls and then did blood tests. 'Why blood tests?' I asked. "Testosterone count" was the answer. As she was being so thorough, I told her about my restoration, just in case it might have any pertinence to the exam. She checked in my records and found the entry for my infant circumcision in 1946 and said she never would have known from the way I presented that I had been cut. Although she had no first-hand knowledge, she had heard of the restoration movement, but could not see that, in my case, I had done myself any unintentional harm.

        A week later and the blood tests were back. My levels were normal for a septuagenarian. I got my Viagra prescription free on the National Health Service and we had another short discussion about infant circumcision which is unusual (excluding misguided religious practice) in the UK. For further reading I gave her the URL of this forum and the user name of one "WoodyHoody" who had documented his restoration heh, heh heh . . .

          I brought it up, asking what he thought about it, to my urologist. He dismissed any benefits and did not seem to want to discuss it further, so I didn't press him, other than to state that my experience, and the experience of other restorers didn't agree with him.

          Regards

              Like HoodyWoody I'm also in UK. About the same age as it happens.

              I'm thankfully in reasonably good health. When I got to about 60 years my GP started inviting me along for blood pressure checks. I knew that I was on edge during such checks and it showed in the readings. I had to confide in him that I did not like medical examinations and my reasons. You guys know what they are. I mentioned to him that I had restored a reasonable likeness of a foreskin and offered to let him have a look. He declined the offer but did not otherwise comment.

              Looking for a restorer who has a background in human skin cell biology. I'm interested in developing a mathematical model of the restoration process. Personal message me.

                Great post, not the least because it involves the reasons for a check-up for for possible symptoms. Intelligent thing to do, Mr Hoody.

                The bottom line in all this restoration stuff is that the vast majority of physicians don't have a "dog in this hunt", regarding restoring. Too busy trying to make a living while complying with all the increasing rules and regulations.

                This issue, ie "what would a doctor think" has come up on forums many times over the years. The assumption is that there is this big schism between restorers and physicians. There simply isn't. While a few of them are opposed, most simply weren't educated about what is still a grassroots practice; a practice which is completely off their radar, so they don't have an opinion pro or con, and they're smart enough not to voice one based on no information.

                See, that's the thing, forum members think they do have this starkly opposed position, that they're all aggressively anti restoration. But they aren't; they are in fact in a different world from yours (and the forum hate), with different issues; they basically care about people, and they don't lie awake at night thinking that restorers are waiting outside with placards and red crotches. Don't let the few wackos on restoration forums condition you towards seeing the world as a war. It isn't. It's a matter of education, both your education and theirs.

                  Thank you all for the input. The main reason for my question is that I hate when I'm noticing something new with my penis, whether it be a bump, or a vein, or dull pain. Things like this rarely cause concern 'cause stuff happens down there all the time, but I get anxious thinking about having to the go see the doctor for whatever reason and not being able to get an accurate diagnosis for whatever is going on simply because I don't want to share that I'm restoring my foreskin. I feel embarrassed to tell him, I'm scared to hear that he thinks it's a bad idea and I should stop. That would be very hard for me to hear emotionally.

                    I've visited my GP doctor where I live here in Sweden and I've told him about my restoration.. ofcours he incarged me to do that but carefully without hurting my skin or my cock !!
                    but I think the majority of doctors in the US are brainwashed .... !! Am sorry to say that but its the truth

                      Plenty of doctors restore.

                      I've had three different doctors since I considered restoring.

                      The first (before restoring) told me to remain "tough and leathery" when I told him I was trying to get more supple and sensitive by slathering lotion morning and night. His reason was a slightly puffy hair follicle on the scrotum that he thought might be infected.

                      The second was freaked at my first appointment when he read "circumcised at birth, non-surgical foreskin restoration starting age 38" in the history he had me fill out. He stared at that for over a minute apparently thinking about what if anything to say. He wound up being benignly supportive and treating my foreskin just like an intact patient's (no unwarranted retraction for exams).

                      The third (my current doctor) is fully supportive and says things like "everything off head to toe, put the gown on with opening in the back. You can leave your retaining cone on. I'll be back to examine you in a minute."

                        My doctor recircumcised what little restored foreskin I had... it was terrible. But now I am one in a billion, the only twice circumcised human male alive today. It looks weird, I have two scar lines.... Ladies love it!

                          May I ask why you were circumcised twice?

                            I haven't seen the doctor in a while but I hope he'll freak out when he finds out my foreskin is back!

                              Hate to burst your bubble but I hear from twice-cut men regularly. And the circumcision "revision" business (often just a tighter circumcision) for children is booming. They say it brings in as much as the first pass, because it's 20 times the revenue for 5% of the procedures.
