Please follow instructions below

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
Thanks for writing in to us.

I have read through your query in detail.
Please find my observations below.

1. Frenuloplasty is a procedure involving the surgical correction of frenulum which is a sensitive skin attaching the foreskin to the penis.

2. Please take the medicines given to you by your doctor to be taken after the surgery.

3. For the frenuloplasty post operative wound care you should do the following.
(i) In the first 48 hours, please do not try to pull the foreskin back as the wound is still healing. During this time please apply warm water and clean the area with sponging and then apply T bact ointment.
(ii) From the third day onwards you can slowly sponge the area with warm water after moving back the skin with clean hands and use T bact ointment.
(iii) There will be small blisters formed in the operated area and this falls out as scar in 10 days after healing.

Hope this answers your question. Please feel free to correct any oversight in my interpretation of your problems and discuss them in detail as per your requirements.

Hope your query is answered.
Do write back if you have any doubts.

Hi Rajeshswain230,
Thanks for writing back with an update.

1. Frenuloplasty is a surgical procedure and might cause swelling of the foreskin in the first few days after surgery.

2. The procedure involves a surgical wound of the foreskin and since it has a rich vascular supply therefore swelling is present.

3. It will heal slowly and by end of ten days most of it will have healed.

Hope your query is answered.

some how its 6th day little bit pain is there. is there any indication of dissolve of stitches??
doctor
Answered by Dr. Vivek Chail 8 minutes later
Brief Answer:
Please have the operated wound seen by the surgeon to confirm healing

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
Thanks for writing back with an update.

1. Most surgeons use self dissolving material for stitches and if your surgeon has also used self dissolving ones then it will dissolve in 7 to 10 days.

2. If your surgeon has asked to come for stitch removal then they might have used non dissolving material and this requires to be removed after a week.

3. Slight pain and itching will be there because of the sensitive nature of the operated area. Please avoid touching your penis except during urination or cleaning and applying ointment. Even if your doctor has not called you, it will be better to consult them tomorrow and have the operated area seen once to make sure healing is normal.

Hope your query is answered.

Please find details below

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
Thanks for writing back with an update.

1. If you have only mild sore throat then it is likely to be a viral flu due to weather changes. Hope your surgery area is better now.

2. Can you please tell me for how many days you have taken Ceftum 500mg? If you have taken of 7 to 10 days then there is no need of taking it any longer.

3. Where are you feeling weakness? If it is generalized weakness then it might be due to stress and because you are still recovering from the surgery.

4. In the absence of fever there is no probability of infection.

5. Please dink lots of water and fresh juices and also apply ointment to the surgery area. If doctor has seen and said that it is healing well then there is no problem. Did he tell you any thing about stitch removal? Please let me know.

Hope your query is answered.

Detailed Answer:
Hi XXXX,
Thanks for writing back with an update.

1. Six weeks or one and a half months will get over quickly and you will be back to normal.

2. For early recovery please continue to apply ointment and do not touch the surgery area except during applying medicine.

3. Wear loose inner clothes to avoid discomfort and pain due to friction.

4. Have a regular diet containing 2200 kcal daily

A sample daily diet chart is as follows

Early Morning

A cup of tea/ milk with 2 biscuits of your choice

Breakfast

2 parathas with curd or 2 plain rotis with paneer or 2 idlis with chutney/sambhar or 1 bowl of upma or oats with two boiled eggs

Mid morning

Soup or a whole fruit (apple or guava)

Lunch

Salad with rotis (2 to 3) or rice (1 bowl) with dal/ sambhar and a cup of vegetable. Occasionally you can add some light fries in lunch. You can add two vegetables every day. If non vegetarian then you can take 2 to 4 pieces of chicken or fish.

Afternoon

Tea/ juice with 2 biscuits

Dinner

Same as in lunch with slight variation. Dinner should be lighter than lunch
Milk after dinner

5. Start doing 30 minutes meditation everyday in the morning and you will be able to forget the surgery area and do better in exam.

You can always write back to me for guidance and I will help you with my best suggestion.

Hope your query is answered.
