Have frequent urinations after circumcision. Normal?

I I just had a circumcision done about 5 days ago , and sometimes I have a more frequent liking of always needing to go to the bathroom to urinate after being circumsized . And I can always feel it coming usually in like a matter of a few hours . Is that natural ? Or is something really going on that I should be concerned about it ?

thanks for using health care magic.
Frequent urination is not a normal symptom especially as its been for a couple of days. It is more likely that you have acquired a urinary tract infection probably after the circumcision. Urinary tract infection usually presents with pains during urination, frequent urination in smaller quantities and in severe cases fever will be present. To confirm this, you need a urine analysis which your doctor can order, interpret and prescribe drugs following the result.
It is possible as well to have frequent urination in a cold weather or after consuming large amounts of fluid. However, the later is usually with abundant urination at a time.
Hope this helps you.

Thanks for your query,
Frequent urination may be sign of Urinary tract infection which may present with burning/pain during urination, fever, feeling of incomplete emptying, nausea or vomiting.
You have had your circumcision done which may predispose to UTI.
Take plenty of water and cranberry juice.
Visit doctor and get labs like CBC,urinalysis and urine culture. It can be treated with proper antibiotics.
Hope it helps.
Take Care!
