Question: edemaI had circumcision done in XXXXXXX and I have what the surgeon says is a skin adhesion which would heal itself but didn't so I had surgery again in august and its still there and now I have what he says is an edema in addition to the adhesion. he said it could take 6 months to heal. I was wondering if that is true and if there is anything I could do or take to speed up the healing process. I am 26 and im not on any medication but an inhaler for asthma. and prilosec and phenergan and singulair.

Hi
Thanks for the query

The circumcision is a minor surgical procedure and the healing occurs with one to two weeks time period. I don't know why it is so much delayed in your case.

For best healing to occur it required that there should be good margins exposed with good blood supply but if the skin over the margins develop without adhesion then there is minimum chances of healing and a procedure known as debridement is done in which the skin over the margins is removed. It will be helpful if you have second opinion from another surgeon,

Topical steroids are also very much helpful in healing process.

If you still have some query, feel free to ask

Thanks

I was diagnosed with breast cancer last month and decided to have a bilateral mastectomy though the cancer was in my right breast. I was born with a deformed left hand but never really diagnosed for anyjthing. After my mastectomy the plastic surgeon told me that I have Polands Syndrome because I didn't have my left pectoral muscle although I have a breast a bit smaller than my right and that also explained my webbed left handfingers. I also have symptoms of horners syndrome on the left side of my face, drooping eye lid aand absence of sweat. Do you think the syndromes are all connected?
