I am in my late 40s and had to have circumcision due to short foreskin and tight frenulum pulling and tearing when getting strong hard erections. Touching the frenulum when erect was quite sore. The foreskin did not cover the entire gland when flaccid and I could not pull it over to cover up the glanc. I took the courage to speak to my GP about my frenulum tearing problem and was referred to an urologist who didn’t really look closely at my privates. He just asked me to show him what the problem was and it was over in a few minutes.
After around 10 months of waiting for the circumcision operation appointment day, the same urologist was operating on me but didn’t really explain how or what he was going to cut but just said he will not cut much off to leave more skin intact. He left the frenulum intact that was the main problem! Oh well!!!
I think on day 2 post-op, I must have pulled of the sutures below the frenulum when I sat down to put my shoes on. I felt a pulling pain around the frenulum area but didn’t check to see if it bleed as I was late to meet a friend for coffee. Later in the evening it looked detached! I should have gone straight back to the hospital to get stitched up?
I have been to see different GPs over several days and back to the same hospital in A&E for checkup. But all doctors who saw my penis said the area looked normal despite it looking mutilated, swollen, yellowish, wet and smelt a bit weird - all said it was not infection! One GP said the detached part below the frenulum will heal but would take a bit longer due to the missing sutures. It will heal by secondary intention - healing inwards then outwards.
This is what it looks like on day 15...
Does it look normal? Or infected? Damaged due to tearing sutures? Skin looks like cut too short below the frenulum?
