The end of my penis (the meatus) is usually sealed in the morning? (ten weeks post-op)

I'm not sure if this is the correct place to post this, but here goes.

Almost ten weeks ago I had a circumcision due to phimosis, but now when I go to urinate in the morning the meatus is sealed shut (almost like it's dried shut). I usually have to try and unseal it carefully by hand or dip it in water to unseal it. There is no pain, nor is there any substance that leaks out.

Has anyone else had this problem post-op? Is there a solution to preventing the meatus sealing over night?

I just want to be able to go to the toilet without worrying if it's going to be blocked or not.

Sounds like it's just dried out. You could try a bit of Vaseline before going to bed


I agree. Removing the foreskin will have exposed the glans to air permanently and dried out the skin surface. Maybe even apply some lube morning and night?
