Circumcision Concerns

Hi, I had my penis circumcised on the 1st October and I've got a few concerns about it.

Firstly is that the swelling hasn't gone down by any significant degree since then (it being 12 days since the operation now).

Second that one of the stitches at the tip of the frenulum (basically just before it meets the glans) has popped, leaving what amounts to an open wound on the head of my penis. It still bleeds occasionally, especially when I'm trying to clean under the swelling, and I've had to keep it wrapped up in bandages/dressings due to discharge/blood.

There doesn't seem to be any sign of infection, luckily, but I'm still concerned that it's not healing correctly. Should I visit my GP or can I just leave it to heal on its own?

Re: Circumcision Concerns

Update on this. It's been a month since my op and there's still a slight wound on the head of my penis, but it's healing pretty well. I picked up an infection at some point and have done a course of antibiotics, which seems to have cleared it up.

However, I've discovered that a couple of stitches had popped underneath the swelling and now there's a bright red 'lump' (for lack of a better word) of tissue along one side of my penis. The question I want to ask is how long this would take to heal naturally, and whether it would be better to go see a doctor about it?
