Day 11 after circumcision (NSFW photo)

Day 11 after circumcision (NSFW photo)

Hey guys, first post here, i had a circumcision done 11 days ago due to Phimosis (was never able to retract my foreskin either flaccid or erect)

Overall pretty satisfied with the result, the first few days were the worst because of the super sensitive head rubbing against clothing to the point of making me jolt from the pain.

This subsided after around day 8,still very sensitive but was able to walk a fair bit today and even took a 30 minutes bus ride to go pick my car up from the dealer .

Now after showering today i noticed this kind of beige / yellow stuff on my glans (especially the urethra which caused me to spray when peeing, i was able to remove it with pretty much no discomfort (it actually peeled off, kinda like dead skin?)

Anyway, it's also present on the underside of the head (near frenulum) and its really driving me with worry that it might be the start of an infection, the right side of the shaft is also more red in the stitched area.

This yellow stuff is absolutely painless and otherwise I'm ok, no fever or pain or discomfort but does this look OK?

I can't see the doctor until Monday ☹️

Hi Juergen I had the same stuff near where my frenulum was removed and I don’t believe it’s abything to worry about!

Ah, i went through the photos that i took 2 days ago of the incision site and it seems that the part that's now yellow used to be covered by the black scab (if that's the correct term?),basically the black scab used to be much bigger, idk if it fell from the shower or walking an hour today or even if it's normal for it to fall on its own.

Either way, thank you very much for the reply, you've put my mind at ease for a bit 🙂

I'm on day 11 as well and I have some stitches like that but I have real bad swelling still on the bottom but my surgeon said this was healthy and healing. I've been bathing it in salt water 3-4 times a day and putting a tiny bit of vaseline on the stitches when I sleep and they are starting to heal. I've noticed the salt water almost drains the puss. Don't worry man, really focus on keeping it clean and I'm sure you'll be sweet. Trust me, before seeing my surgeon today I was so worried.

I don't mean puss, I mean the yellow liquid.

Oh, thank you for the reply

The yellow stuff is dried lymphatic fluid which has oozed out through the incisions.

Check out my newly posted pics; I'm day 11 as well. I see that your stitch line busted apart on your dorsal side (under your frenulum) where its scalping pink, yellow, and black. Mine's tore apart a little on the top side of my shaft below the glans.

It compensated by attaching its loose end to the raised scarring tissue that began to fill in the gap that tore apart. The bonding began to solidify yesterday, but the original tearing hppd Monday night.
