Circumcision stitches didnt combine the skin

Hi i was circumcise 10 days ago in the first few days i notice the left side of the stiches not sticking or overlapping on shaft skin and its not sticking on skin as it heals day 10 i remove the stiches because its not helping anymore and just make may penis swollen and that time i confirm that the left stiches on my penis didnt stick/combine to shaft skin.. the question is should i visit my surgeon again or will it heal and combine the skin on its own? I red some doctor says it will heal on itself on the stitches that pop break but mine didnt break it just that it didnt stick in the first looks like only the inside stick.. by the ways there is no bleeding and no pain but very little swollen as i am in day 10 already thanks in advance guys.

Your skin doesn't seem to have a gap between itself and the shaft and it looks fine to me (mind you I am no doctor or nurse so my opinion isn't a professional one). So if you are asking for my personal opinion, it looks fine and doesn't really need any restitching and actually looks really nicely healed for 8 days. I would consider myself lucky.

However, if you yourself are concerned about it then better consult your doctor, but in my opinion there does not appear to be a reason for concern.

Didn't see it before, but even so. There might be a "gap" between the incision part and your skin, but is there a gap between the skin and your actual penis shaft? Usually the skin heals itself to the shaft just fine, and looking at other parts of your incision seem to be already fused I don't think it is of much concern, but if you want to be 100% sure, better to check with your doctor.

I have this same exact provlem now. I wonder what can the outcome be??? Because when the shaft skin is fully connected to the foreskin and they fuse. When erected the pulling of the shaft skin tightens up the loose looking foreskin, and straightens it out. But if one part of the shaft skin attach to the shaft meat underneath, then it want be able to pull its last of the foreskin during erection like the other attached fusings. Which I wonder will the unpulled foreskin just sit there bunched up since is not being pulled on? So I wanna see pictures of this TYPE OF possible outcomes

How many days since you undergo circumcision? Mine is on day 13 and its still on the same condition seems like not attaching im still hoping it will connect slowly from under the skin going up.. how is your cut now?

Well the split I had on the top-right side did, only because both flaps of skin (foreskin and shaft skin) were still wet and raw. So they just replaced and attached themselves in a decent way in the last 5 days ago. I'm just keeping my erections calmed so that they continue to strengthen their connective bond.

However, in regards to my top-left split, it wouldn't stay put long enough to actually reconnect while both skin enda were still wet and raw. So now both skins are dried and healed on their own. They lay on top of each other while I'm flaccid, but when I urinate and shower and inspect my penis, I notices that when I move my penis any direction, the two flaps of skin moves and wiggles. So they are not bonded at all, but just lay on each other because of position.

My 6-week appointment is on July 31st. If they are not bonding by then, I will ask my surgeon to scrape both ends with a filing tool to make them raw and sore, and then stitch them together whereas everything else is already healed.

Skin can only bond to other skin when both have exposed soft-tissue and underskin; the connectings happens there! Two pieces of intact skin cannot fuse, even if they were stitched together, they still wouldn't truly fuse.
