... I was circumcised on Friday (3 days ago) for medical reasons at the age of 23.
I have two issues that I'm looking for some advice with.
1. Below the glans, roughly at the height of the stitches, my penis is swollen. I know that some swelling is normal, but I don't know if mine is still in the normal range. It's swelling is about as thick as my pinky, maybe even ring... (2 replies)

... Update on this. It's been a month since my op and there's still a slight wound on the head of my penis, but it's healing pretty well. I picked up an infection at some point and have done a course of antibiotics, which seems to have cleared it up.
However, I've discovered that a couple of stitches had popped underneath the swelling and now there's a bright red 'lump' (for... (1 replies)
... Hi, I had my penis circumcised on the 1st October and I've got a few concerns about it.
Firstly is that the swelling hasn't gone down by any significant degree since then (it being 12 days since the operation now).
Second that one of the stitches at the tip of the frenulum (basically just before it meets the glans) has popped, leaving what amounts to an open wound on the... (1 replies)
... Looks like it's just me then! ;)
Yeah that sounds pretty plausible. I did work up the nerve to see my doc and he's referring me to a urologist to make sure it is a suture (via ultrasound) and hopefully get it taken out. Pleased I've been, just hope I don't have to wait too long to get seen.

I have a slightly embarrassing problem that I really don't want to see my doctor about. :confused: I was circumcised as a child and although the procedure was successful in overcoming my phimosis (tightening of the foreskin) it left me with an unsightly skin bridge from my shaft to the glans for many years. As an adult this has recently broken, leaving the area... (4 replies)

... Hi, first I have to say that english is not my first language so I hope you will understand what I mean to say.
I am 19 years old, so I had my circumcision done last month (June 13). I've had phimosis so it had to be done.

... Update: Day 21: Erections are no longer painful. :)
The sutures are all out. The swelling on the right side has greatly decreased. Its almost nil now. The wound is also healing well. There is a smallish wound under the penis near the glans which is healing the slowest. Rest everything seems ok. There is some itching on the healed stitches. My doctor recommended using...
