Surgery suggested for tight penile foreskin. Any other treatment options? Any side effects of the surgery? - Online Doctor Chats
How can I help you ?
I'm 27 years old and I have a tight foreskin which doesn't pull back. I'm very anxious and need help to rectify it
Ok, it is a common condition seen in males
Its called PHIMOSIS
Have you got it examined any time by a doctor ?
No not yet
I suggest you visit a Urologist
If severe you may be needing a minor surgical procedure called Circumcision
i'm not sure how mild or severe it is
Based on the description you provided I believe you will need the surgery to correct it
I feel too embarrassed to tell my parents about it. How long will the surgery take? Do I need someone to take me home after that
No, its a simple surgery. It does not take more than two days of hospital stay
So it means I need to get admitted for more than a day?
I'm told that there are lot of side effects. Is it true? Any complications ?
No not all
Only rare complication is its recurrence
I don't find any problem while masturbating. Should I still need to get it done?
Yes, I do recommend you to get it done. You my find difficulty in performing intercourse with your partner
is there any specific hospital which does the surgery
Almost all hospitals with operation theater XXXXXXX do this
This is a common surgery
can I go to work after the surgery? I mean how soon can I
Within two days
ok, I get itching in my butt hole everynight while I sleep. It's very hard to control and it's become a habit. Is it because of any infection?
Yes, it could be due to worm infestation
what do I do for that
You may have to ask your treating doctor for the deworming medication he after examining you can formulate a specific dosage and advice you
can I ask this to a urologist ?
Yes, you can.
ok thanks. Do we contract any diseases by oral sex? if with multiple partners
even if they are healthy.. i mean without them having any of those diseases
No, the above diseases if present in your partner can cause infection in you
Is there anything I can help you with ?
just one more thing. I get a transparent semen sometimes when i masturbate. does it have to be thick all the time ?
also I ejaculate too early. How do i hold it for long?
any medications to control early ejaculation?
There are no medications with good success. The best technique is to follow exercises like Kegel exercises
okay. that's it for now. thanks for the suggestions
