Circumcision In Children With Epilepsy?
I have hyperactivity and epilepsy like that of an autistic child, almost every day he has a seizure “even though he is taking medication. really his son can’t be kept in a very stiff body if he is held. r n What is the solution so he can be circumcised and if for example he has to be circumcised at the hospital about how much does it cost ??
Hello Riska! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
First, the child should be examined first by a pediatrician to find out the disorder they are experiencing, whether it is really hyperactive, epilepsy, autism, or even other disorders. The three disturbances you mentioned are different and the handling is very different. If the child is already known to have epilepsy and is already in therapy but not yet in control, it would be nice if your parents consulted first with a doctor who used to give these anticonvulsant medications about circumcision. Circumcision by general practitioners, either during mass circumcision or in the clinic, will only use local anesthesia. That is, the child will be aware throughout the process of circumcision. If children are difficult to work with to remain silent, this action will be difficult. You can consult with a pediatrician who is used to treating your sister, whether circumcision is better done now or delay the epilepsy they are experiencing is starting to be controlled and if it can be done now, can it be done by a general practitioner or should a urologist specialize using general anesthesia. Need to be considered, the benefits and risks of this action. If the risk is greater than the benefits that can be obtained, circumcision should be postponed first. The doctor who is used to examining and treating your sister will explain this. If you really need to be referred to a urologist, your urologist will also check your brother's condition first, whether circumcision is possible now. For costs, each hospital has its own policies. You can ask at the hospital where your sister used to get health care about the costs involved. If your family is having difficulty with costs, you can also ask your GP at the nearest health center, if it is possible if your younger sibling is referred for circumcision at the hospital for free using the National Health Insurance BPJS.
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
