How long it will take to get recovery after a circumcision surgery? - Online Doctor Chats
i have a query on circimsicion
sure, please proceed
how long it will take to recover
circumcision is a minimal surgery, and the time taken for the operated site will be less than a few days
but you can get back to work the very next day, without any issues
i got operated on thursday my foreskin is out and it very sensitive
it will be normal in few days
you mean the foreskin is sensitive or the head of the penis ?
it is usual for the cut end of the skin, to be sensitive , due to the inflammation
head of penis
that is because, normally in a uncircumcised man, the glans is covered by the foreskin
but when circumcision is done, the sensitive penis head, is exposed, and hence you will feel it uncomfortable. but with time , the sensitivity will subside and you will adapt to it
how long it will take
hence thats the reason, it provides pleasure during sex. so when the penis head is exposed, any touch will stimulate the nerve endings, and you will feel sensitivity
with circumcision, the nerve endings need time to adapt to the change and hence it needs time
what abt stech marks how long it will take to heal i am applying a aintment
which location are u having them ?
around the penis
did u have them before, or they have started recently ?
no when opertaed i thk thy stiched it
im not sure, what exactly are you refering to usually there will be no stretch marks in circumcision , as the skin there is elastic
in case, you are referrring to scar tissues, with surgery, they will reduce in about 2-3 weeks
doctor asked me to apply ointment
and the skin appearance wil normalize
which ointment is that ?
thats a antibiotic to prevent infection you can apply it as long as directed
i cant drive bike for 2 weeks
one more thing it will not take more than 2 weeks right
yes, not more than that
u want me to cover that part with cotton
instead, you can use a we gauze piece
cotton will stick and cause removal painful
using a wet gauze will be more better, and easy
what is gauze piece?
this is available in pharmacies, it appears like netlon material
but is made of cotton
ok after some time the penis head will be covered by my skin again
it depends on whether it was a partial or complete foreskin removal in case it is partial, the part left will just cover as much as available in case it is complete, the glans penis will be left without any cover
and there will be no growth of the skin, to cover it again
i think my penis head is completely out and and thy are strect marks below it round the penis .
I hope you followed my suggestions
it means it is a complete circumcision, and the marks are due to drying and lack of lubrication , rather than stretch
you need not worry about that
u want me to take one week rest
there is no need for rest
i cant were a pant
you can do ur regular work as usual
do u have any pain ?
any discharge ?
but if anything touches the foreskin
it is bit incomfortable
in that case, you can put a wet cotton gauze over the penis, and then wear a small shorts
in case that is not possible you can take , a few days off
you can ask your doctor , to prescrbe you NSAID medications, which will help in better healing and pain relief
i will see the doc agaoin on tuesday
by that time, the healing may be complete and you will feel better
You are very welcome
one more thing doc
once the healing is one
Are u there ?
i think these are stech marks only doc
stretch marks , do not appear within 2-3 days after surgery
they occur , only when tissue has expanded
in your case, there was no procedure done with tissue expansion, so it is less likely that those marks arose in the last 2 days
in case, those are stretch marks indeed, then they could be very old, and were not noticeable early, due to the presence of the foreskin
there are no creams, that can be applied to the penis, to remove the stretch marks, formed long back
i think doc has done some stretch
you need not worry about them
they will not affect the functioning of your penis
after 2 weeks everything will be normal
and with time and healing, the concerned marks may subside altogether
Is there anything else , that you need help with ?
after 2 weeks i can have sex
yes, you can
you are welcome
take care and have a good night
