Just been circumcised and scared to get an erection

Hey guys im 18 and was circumcised today, due to a very horrible case of Phimosis I’m scared if I get an erection it’s going to rip the skin that they have re-attached, just curious what to expect as I know I will encounter one but would like to know from someone’s past experience, any advice is very helpful and greatful for any repsonce, thank you

It's normal to feel like that mate. I had mine done 6 days ago and still feels the same.

If you get an erection when in bed it helps if you curl up into fetal position which seems to stop it pulling so much.

Also avoid porn or anything which may arouse you and definitely don't touch it when it's erect.

Hope it all goes well for you.

I literally posted this and then I’ve had about 5-6 erections throughout the night, not as painful as everyone saying but I might just be lucky how the surgeon has set the dressing, the dressing is really holding it in, I’m also hurts from going erect to flaccid, but super early days yet :)

I had mine about a week ago and I had an erection within 1 hour of leaving the hospital on account of the sensitivity of a newly circumcised penis. It hurt a bit but nothing but a bit of bleeding happened... And after day 7 and having at least 10 erections a day especially when talking to my potential partners it's still a bit uncomfortable but no stitches have popped... I even tried to masturbate after 5 days while the stitches are still in. Took 4.5 hours until I eventually gave up. So don't even try until about 4 weeks. But IF you can, try not to have an erection. It will definitely be hard unless you can stand the mild pain of stitches pulling or even popping.

But everyone is different... You'll be fine.

Just woke up this morning the blue dressing has now fell off and it was quite a shock to see my glans and no foreskin can definitely say that the surgeon done one amazing job!

When the dressing fell off I was a bit thrown because my whole life I’ve never seen what my glans look like, so I woke up this morning and felt a bit sick because going 18 years with a non retractable foreskin to completely having the glands out is very different but I cannot fault the surgeon one bit!

Erections are uncomfortable but I feel like people in other forums try putting the ultimate scare into you, from my experience it’s just a bit uncomfortable and pain is quite minimum, but hey everyone is different :)

You’ve had a dressing on, come back tomorrow when you’ve slept the night and tell us you didn’t wake up nearly crying.

My dressing came off on the first night but like you I thought what is everyone going on about erections aren’t that bad then the 3rd night it hit me 😂

Well I never had a dressing on and it wasn't bad at all... But again everyone experiences things differently

Yeah welcome to the club I would stay up until I couldn’t keep my eyes open any more and still woke up 3/4 times a night nearly in tears but it settles down during the second week for first week is the worst 👍

It’s getting more comfortable every night if I’m honest, shouldn’t be speaking too soon at the moment 🤣
