ADULT CIRCUMCISION DAY 4/5. THIS IS HELL!

DAY 4; So yesterday wasn't to bad in the sense I was eating normally and walking around a lot more. Did manage to sit most of the day whereas before I couldn't. Swelling and bruising looks awful and around the frenulum it's red raw and quite painful. Is that normal?

Night 4; not the worst night but not good. Painful erections again and woke up with stinging like really bad around the frenulum.

I'm struggling tbh, the in ability to be able to do the simplest of things is really getting me down and I know everyone has to go through this and yes I'm being a moany bitch but it just feels like it ain't improving. Still can't where clothes and I'm starting I may never be able to with the sensitivity. Do you reckon a salt bath will help today?

I had salt baths daily from day 2. Sounds normal to be honest. I made quiet a few posts through my journey if you want to have a look at these. Might help. I'm 8 weeks post op now and all good.

I think I'll have a salt bath today then and see if that helps at all.

And will do. It's reassuring to know there's light at the end of tunnel and things do get better.

Mate. I wish I'd had it done years ago. I've suffered with bad phimosis for years. It used to split and bleed after sex and killed for ages after. Sex is now amazing. Feels so much better. Wife can't leave it alone now!

That's great news. That makes me think more positively about going through with it and not regretting the procedure.

No regrets here. Best thing I've ever done. Stitches were by far the worst thing for me they felt like cheese wire tied tightly around my bellend. They were supposed to be dissolvable but didn't seem to be going anywhere at 2 weeks so I went to see my nurse at the GP practice and she removed them all there and then stating the after 14 days they have done their job and are no longer needed.

Things improved so much quicker once the stitches had gone.

Bare with it mate I'm sure you'll be really pleased with the end result and like I said it feels amazing. My foreskin was so tight I'don't never had sex with it fully retracted before.

Lube is the key when you get back into things. Plenty of it. Especially when wanking.

Keep us posted with your progress.

Daz , did you use gauze at all to cover the wounds after the stitches fell out?.. Like to walk around and reduce any injury.. also can you take a look at my post and let me know what you think.

My dressing fell off before I left the hospital and I never repressed it again.
