What causes tightness in skin after the circumcision of penis?

Hello I recently had a circumcision (3 weeks) and from the erections I've had since I fear they might have nipped to much skin from it. It feels just like my phimosis felt, that the skin around the shaft was restraining the entirety of the penis from coming out. Is it possible that the skin might stretch in the next months or should I be looking for consultation about the possibility of another surgery? Thank you and excuse my grammar, english is not my mother tongue.

Hello,

No need to worry. Even though your surgical wound has healed, please do not try too much to pull the foreskin back before 30 to 40 days after the surgery.

After that you will be able to pull your foreskin back without effort. You may talk to your surgeon for further clarification and guidance. Therefore I suggest consulting your surgeon.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
Dr. K. V. Anand, Psychologist
