The stuff on catheters is a lubricant not a glue, so shouldn't affect the foreskin

Soapy water may help enable the foreskin to be retracted, or steroid cream

The operation is likely to be a minor incision or a circumcision


Have you seen your GP since the A&E visit?


Yes the doctor said its not fully stuck yet there is about under an inch showing just below the head of the penis so i must wait until its all stuck i tried pulling it apart slowly but it tore the skin and started bleading has the trip to A@E thank you .
