Prolonged swelling after adult Circumcision? advice?

I'm 28 & had a circumcision 6 weeks ago. Everything is pretty much healed up except I have a swollen band from cutline to the head of my penis. Its starting to scare me cause most of the guys I've talked to that had it done as adults said theirs was completely healed by the 4th & 5th week. Has anyone else had problems like this or know of information on it? It would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Prolonged swelling after adult Circumcision? advice?

it sounds normal to me. people heal at different rates. if you have any doubt, see your doctor. you might want to put some ice in a towel, and apply the towel, to take the swelling down.

Re: Prolonged swelling after adult Circumcision? advice?

Thx for your reply.
I actually seen a different urologist yesterday & told him my concern. He seen it & said "the incision line looks great all the way around, I couldn't have done a better job myself" I said " I agree but what about the swelling?" He said " it has healed normal" I said " so, it may stay this way?" He said "yes, theres nothing wrong with it, it looks normal" I said " I dont think this swelling looks normal & other guys have told me its not normal" He said (very offended) "who are you gonna believe, me or them? I see more penis's then them" I said "well, in my opinion a normal penis's shaft is all one size up to the flared head." He said "well, I'm the doctor & you can believe what you want but its normal!"
So, I didnt push the issue & left it alone cause my goal wasnt to offend him but to make sure it will be ok and get my questions answered. I still dont believe that a penis should have a shaft one size up to a bigger band of skin all the way around then to the flared head. I know what a circumcised penis looks like- like most of us do.

Tell me where your swelling is exactly- I want to know if it's like my circ experience.

Re: Prolonged swelling after adult Circumcision? advice?

If its a very loose circ, you may need a revision- might be too much skin was left & lymph not being able to drain properly. Try not to stress and be too anxious which won't help. Give it a little more time to subside.

Yes, you might need to have a 2nd surgery to cut more skin if the cut was too loose which may be causing the swelling. Mine was also a very loose cut which i believe caused my swelling but I chose not to have a revision surgery.
