So my 8 year olds got circumcised 5 days ago due to really bad phimosis. Surgery went good I think it's going well so far. He has never had any type of gauze on it just the ointment prescribed and pain meds. He's still really sensitive stitches look good and he's still pretty swollen. The dr said 1-2 weeks to heal completely. My son plays tackle football so my question is when do you think he will be well enough to start playing and practicing again. 2 weeks just feels too soon but I am his mom so I'm just worried. What do you guys who have had this procedure as teens or even adults think about him going back in 2 weeks?
8 year old boy circumcision: So my 8 year... - Men's Health Forum
It is normal for boys to have a non-retractable foreskin at age 8. It does not indicate phimosis.
The circumcision was probably unnecessary and a waste of money.
You should consider finding a new doctor.
At least a month even if the chance is low don't risk it
