I'm going to see a urologist shortly to discuss having a circumcision performed. From what I've read, the week afterwards can be rather painful but what I'm more concerned about is the anesthesia beforehand. From what I understand, most circumcisions are done in the office under local anesthesia. How painful is it getting an injection into your penis? I've also heard that you feel a burning sensation for about a minute after the lidocaine is injected.
