hey guys, been following these types of forums for the past week as the information given to me about post-surgery care wasn't the greatest.
I circumcised exactly a week ago due to phimosis and steroid creams not working, first day or two I was good, then I was bleeding where the frenulum was cut, I just held it tight to help coagulate the blood.
I got night time erections which have reduced because I no longer drink fluids after 6pm. My erections I feel is stopping me from recovering because it pains so much when I get an erection.
I am constantly keeping it dry and wrapped in tissue, I was using gauze before but now I just keep the tissue around my penis fixed with an cosy but no so tight elastic band.
The head is extremely sensitive as expected but when does this begin to subside?
I have this ballooned area just below the stitches area, is this cause for concern? When will it begin going down?
I had to go work on my 5th recovery day, as a waiter, I came home and my shaft had swollen up a bit, so I have taken the entire week off. I only have time off until this Friday which would be my 11th recovery day, how can I aid healing?
How long before you guys were able to pull back your foreskin?
Regarding the stitches, some of them are peeling off, what do I do with them?
Sorry for the pictures attached, I just wanted to show some visual confirmation of my current state.
Thanks in advance
