Circumcision, post-op week 4

Hi guys,

I did my circumcision on (29/6/20). I did it because of the phimosis problem. I am 26 yrs old male and not sexually active. First week after my post-op(5/7/20), i had bleeding and had to readmit to the hospital. I got discharged four days later. A follow up with the doctor on 13/7/20, showed that I might get infected. Hence, doctor continues to ask me to do daily dressing. The swab culture test came on 18/7/20, revealing that there’s no harmful bacteria or infection (Thank god!).

I have another follow up on (27/7/20). Below i have attached how my penis looks like. Would really help if you guys could give your opinion on it. Does it look ok? ( is it me or does the head or gland looks bend) What kind of a cut is it? ( I feel its loose though, not sure high or low) When can i masturbate? ( It’s killing me, yesterday 21/7/20 marked week 4). My head is still very sensitive though and i kinda have my dressing on for like 24 hrs. Thanks for your feedback. Looking forward to reading it.

look good.

should be okay as long as you do what your doctor say.

you might want to wait a bit longer for masturbation, don't risk it.

wash your face and go outside for a walk in the park whenever your mind thirst for it.

Thank you. I will try to abstain myself. Do you by any chance know what style of circumcision this is?

images are not too clear, but I think it's low cut judging by the wound below frenulum.

Thank you

It seems to have healed well. Sexual activites of any sort would be best after 6 Weeks as you don't want to slow down the recovery or add trauma .

About the sensitivity , it only decreases on contact with clothes and hands while you bathe or touch the glans . So once you are cleared by your doc to stop dressing the area start off with loose clothes and encourage contact with the glans . Also if it's too sensitive you might want to use petroleum jelly or non irritant non fragrant moisturisers on the glans and it will help out. All the best !

Thank you so much for the tips. Appreciate it. Do you know what style of circumcision this is? I feel its loose since there is more skin left. However, i am not sure if its high or low.

Have they removed frenulum for u ?

Nope. The frenulum is still there

Thank you. I did came across one of the sites previously. I’m afraid, i am still not sure. Thank you once again.

I wonder why they made it so low. Your scrotum is riding very high up and it looks like you have a lot of hair in your shaft. You should talk to your doctor about that.
