Post-circumcision worries

Hi! I am a 21 year old male who recently (6 days ago!) took the big step and got circumcised. This was because my foreskin wouldn't retract whatsoever (or even come close!), thus preventing me have any kind of sexual relationship/experience.

Anyway, the circumcision itself has been awkward, but the pain on the whole has been managable. However, I am beginning to notice some pain (like an irritation) at the back of my penis (where the frenulum is/should be!). This feels raw and particularly sore if I have any erections. The wound itself isn't too painful, and the head of the penis is raw due to it being exposed, but this appears to be normal.

Is this extra pain - at the back - something that is normal or should I be worried? Has anyone else experienced this?

Cheers,

David.

This is completely normal for only 6 days post circumcision. You'll see the tenderness subside over the next few weeks and you'll be back to nomal. Congratulations on this big step, you won't regret it.

don't you lose sensitivity in the glans?? outside of medical reasons or those stated by the poster, i wouldn't make such a big step.

Re: Post-circumcision worries

wow, Dave ... we are on the same exat boat ... I just had mine done this morning.

Like you have said, the pain is managable ... but the skin around the glan is quite badly swollen ... which of course the doc. also told me before the operation ... it will be like this for days ... It has just stopped bleeding completely, but looks like a mess right now ... hopefully it would heal fast.
