Circumcision, is this normal???

Circumcision, is this normal???

So I had my surgery 7 days ago and the swelling in the picture doesn't seem to be going down. just wondering if this is normal for people recovering from circumcision procedures. It doesn't really hurt so I don't know if I should go to the ER or wait another 6 days to see my doctor. The swelling is below the incision line and is connected to the outer layer of foreskin.

Thanks for any answers

Looks within normal limits of what is expected

Swelling should not have happened . Please show it to your sugeon

My opinion is that you need to back to the surgeon.

Mine did swell a bit but yours looks not only swollen but skin looks a bit twisted. I don't know if it's the way you are holding it. Mine I would say first 6-8 days it looked a really bad but now looks fine and my gun is firing even better than before. All the best fella.

pls wait for another one week, its normal,have a warm salt water dip for ur penis often, stop using antibiotics creams if any, keep the wound dry, clean with soft tissues. it will be normal in next few days...

Never had any swelling like that after my Op. Advise calling the ward where procedure was done, they should have given you contact number. Otherwise see your GP.

Good Luck.

Swelling is normal after the op, it's worth double checking with the doctor if your unsure.

Is the area hot or is there any discharge coming from the area?

How's the healing going?

Did you have skin glue?
