Risk of death from circumcision

Patient: I am a 12 year old boy and going to have my foreskin removed in an operation, I am only allergic to Penicillin. I know it will only be put to sleep for a short time. I am a healthy kid, what are the odds of my dying during surgery? I am very worried!

 

 

Doctor: The operation you are going to have is called a Circumcision. It is a very common operation. There is no risk of dying f rom a circumcision operation. I am sure you will be fine. Good Luck!
