The head is often raw when the foreskin is pulled back for the circumcision. A yellow-whitish film may develop on the head of the penis in the first few days after surgery. This typically goes away within one week. This is not pus or a sign of infection.

Bro genuinely I think you're worrying a bit too much, I wish mine looked like yours after a week. It's been 15 days and only now the head is losing the yellow tint and I've got a fat load of swelling by my frenulum. Stop worrying, keep in clean, air it as much as you can and relax.

I know it’s hard tho I got swelling too I’m struggling to clean it coz of the stitches can’t pull skin back to clean it and one of the stitches came out today ? I got the yellow tint on mine too how u getting rid of the yellow ness??

The University of Mississippi is discussing infant circumcision, which remains common in the United States. The head is raw because it has to be ripped from the glans penis with which it is fused at birth. That remark does NOT apply to adult circumcision.

So what are u saying ?

Reply

What I am saying is that the quoted source is a discussion of infant circumcision, not adult circumcision.

The two are very different.

Reply

That is not necessarily true. Before quoting please ensure that the source is reliable and correct. Sometimes mistaken or misinterpreted pieces of information without bases are spread with little consideration on how they are going to affect the public.

I know right !

It is looking much better than before. The part if the stitch that is in the skin disolves as the Dr said then the knot and the outer part falls off as you have already experienced.

Reply

Yeah but it looks like they’ve stitched it to the edge of my bellend ?

Reply

Hey Chris, I don't think they stitched it to the rim of your glans. That's an optical illusion. Tho I'm sure you have a very low circumcision, meaning there's no foreskin left.

Reply

Which is a bad thing ?!? ....

Reply

Urgh!!!!

Reply

I very much doubt that. A doctor never stitches it on the glans. If the stitches have fallen out there will be most certainly a very little bit of foreskin left. I've heard that a lot of doctors perform this kind of circumcision in Europe. It's called a radical circumcision. It's not bad, it's a different style and it differs from the circumcisions done here in the USA.

So it will be ok ??

Reply

Sure!

England... your anti circumcision tho so

Reply

You’ve got a low/tight circumcision, very common.

It looks fine, the change of colour can be a variety reasons.

Swelling and bruising makes a huge difference to the shape and colour of the penis.

How long has it been since your circumcision?

Reply

It’s been 8 days two of my stitches have come out already ?? Does it look like my stitches are stitched to my bellend ???

Reply

They won’t stitch directly to your glans.

You will have a small amount of inner skin remaining probably 3/5mm once the swelling subsides.

It’s common for the stitches to come out as long as the wound remains knitted together and free of infection it’s fine.

Did you go nhs or private?

Reply

Well I can’t tell if it’s nitted but the whole stitch looks like it’s come out ?? And went nhs??? I’m just worried coz people are saying it’s stitched to the glans

Reply

You should get it examined by a doctor first before feeling worried, its best to get an appointment as soon as possible, try to go to a urologist as this would be the best for this type of problem, and he is asking did you get your circumcision done by the NHS or did you pay for it and do it privately.

Reply

I got it done by the n h s and I went docs yesterday does it looks to you like they’ve stitched it to my glans then pretty sure they wouldn’t do it if I was under nhs

Reply

Well, yes it looks like they have done, but i don’t see any reason why they would have done it like that, but you should try and examine it yourself as you should be able to feel where the stitches are. Overall i think its best to make an appointment with a urologist and see what they think, you can keep getting advice on here but, you wont be able to come to a conclusion without a professional opinion.

Yes but nhs shouldn’t stitch the skin to the head nhs apaparwntly do all circumsisions the same way ? Can I send you a picture?

Reply

Indeed, the nhs don't stitch the skin to the head!

Reply

Exactly but it looks as if it has

Reply

But nothing is what it looks!

Reply

Okay :( I just worry

Reply

Chris, please take a look at your own penis like right now, and see if you can detect threading going through and part if your glans organ going 360 degrees around. If not, then Jimbo93 and timmyboy20 are correct. We can only go off of your leads and doubts, and the very confusing picture itself. As it looks like your prepuce is totally gone, and the 2nd consideration for the surgeon was to stitch somewhere (to the glans). But as you all state, the medical facility doesn't normal go about the protocol of totally eliminating and annihilating the inner prepuce to 0%

Yeah I said waaaaay back in the beginning to you that it looked like your stitches were connected to the bottom portion of your glans, and there seemed not to be any inner foreskin between your glans and shaft skin..they may have snipped it all off??? For whatever reason???

Reply

Well no they did a low tight circ ? So I won’t have much scar line ...?

Reply

Yeah I think the outcome is gonna be very neat without much visible scar line.

Reply

So I should be happy ??

Reply

Sure, why not?

Reply

Because stitches are falling out already !

Reply

My stitches were all fallen out after about 14 days. So no worries!

Reply

Yeah but it’s only

Been 8 days? First one came

Our yesterday ?

Well Bucky85 that is not necessarily true! The pic that you have linked, is actually that of a "high and tight" circumcision. A "normal" circumcision's scar line is actually a little lower (closer to the head) than what's shown in that pic. However, it is said that once circumcised, the more inner foreskin that was saved, the more sensory and sensation will be preserved. Because that area has nerve endings that feels great when massaged with wet, grabbing vagina! Lol

A low circumcision minimizes the "circumferential width and sight" of the scar line, but it very much reduces the man's sensitive and stimulative zones.

I still wonder if Chris was even left any of the good stuff? When he heals and the stitches are gone, the truth will showcase and display

Reply

So confused ahah

Reply

Confused about what?

Reply

You saying if I’m left with any good stuff...

Reply

I am wondering if the doctor left you with any inner foreskin???? If not, then you're missing out on the good stuff to have being circumcised. This is what I meant

Reply

Well I can see some skin under the normal skin just by the bellend ... well behind it ..?
