122. They are rare, an not my friend.
I have taken care of a couple adults who have had circumcisions. I worked a surgical floor in a hospital and the adults were admitted for a couple days after surgery. Yes, this was back in the old days when day surgery and overnight stays were rare, not sure about now. And the couple I took care of had enough health issues that they got it done. Rather like having an ear cut off, or a foot amputated, because of an infection. Those also happen, even with all the modern drugs and antibiotics.

And I agree that in most cases circumcisions are unnecessary.
