Its like fluid trapped inside the swollen area under the swollen skin u can see on the picture

I agree - that doesn't look right and you are right to pursue this after 3 months. Is the doctor who says it’s ok the one that did the op? If so, ask for a second opinion. Even if it’s not the same doctor seek a second opinion. Doctors are often quite reluctant to have their work questioned or to question other doctors’ work, but it’s YOUR body and you have the right to feel satisfied with the finished result. The doctor’s perspective may be that you’ve had your foreskin removed as required, what’s the problem? But there has to be an expectation that the finished result is reasonable aesthetically and functionally, but from the attached picture this is not the case - particularly if you are still experiencing pain. Stand your ground and demand answers would be my recommendation. Good luck.

You have to be careful when reading about "fully healed". Usually it refers to the main scar (incision where the skin is stitched together with the shaft) being sealed off and yours looks nicely healed. It takes months for a penis to fully heal from a circumcision and get normal shape/form. Continued swelling happens in quite a few people. That skin that is now swollen used to be protected by the foreskin so is tender and sensitive and on top of that has been cut into and is swollen so all the more sensitive and irritable. Everyone heals differently doesn't mean there is something wrong with you. Remember your doctors has seen way more circumcisions that you have so its naturally for you to freak out. You should trust your doctor, or if you have serious doubts get a second opinion. Most likely it is nothing to worry about and you can calm down ;).

Unusual. Appears to be operated once more

yeh does not look right fella.

it's important when conducting circumcision that you do some background on the surgeon doing the operation, and talk about what the final result will look like and discuss the pros and cons of the varied styles.

the surgeon who did my operation did 7k plus circumcisions so i knew i was in good hands, I also talked about all of the above where he assured me i would see a good result.

get it fixed from an experienced surgeon, i know it's not you want to hear but think of the end goal, you might have to wait a few months unti "they can fix it" due to healing.

I agree with all the other comments that needs looking at but not by a doctor by the urologist who preformed your procedure ideally or another urologist. I’m 7 weeks in and I’m completely fine all healed up no swelling. If your looks like that after 3 months it definitely needs checking with a urologist.

There still is a lot of oedema. I notice that the brownish coloured skin is very tight. That may be causing your oedema if it is interfering with circulation.

You may want to try this manipulation and see if that helps;
