I had my circumcision on Monday morning so three days ago and my head is extremely sensitive. Obviously this is natural, but my concern is that I’m going on holiday in 17 days. My doctor gave me a fit note for two weeks so he assumes I’ll be up and ready before then but on average when were you guys up and happy to do regular activities? Should I be worried about my holiday at all? Also, does anyone have any tips on how to reduce sensitivity?

Hopefully it works out for you! My worry is that I’m going away with friends so I can’t really do baths or anything like that, so I’m just hoping I can recover at a slightly quicker rate, I’ll check back in a few days and see how you got on!
You will be fine for your holiday pending there are no complications.
As long as the stitches are out you can swim and even ride a bike if you feel up to it.
The glans will be very sensitive for a while but eventually that will fade.
There isn’t really much you can do apart from keeping the penis upright and in place to stop movement.
How would you suggest keeping it upright? At the moment I’m not wearing any clothes due to how sensitive it is but I was given some fabrics to place on the inside of my pants to reduce friction, would you advise wearing them instead of nothing?
