Circumcision is a procedure that most parents would prefer to do because it is necessary. This surgical procedure is known as “circumcision”. What does this procedure involve? According to the World Health Organization, this is a procedure in which part of the head of the penis is amputated. The foreskin is then restored with stitches.
The procedure is usually done on an outpatent but with your consent. This means that you will be able to go home at night and rest at home. But here’s the best part: The penis head will swell for several hours to days immediately after the operation. This is because your body is still sensitive to the operation. Hence, there are no lasting stitches available for you. Expect some soreness or bleeding.
It’s normal to be concerned about whether such pain medications are necessary during circumcision recovery. Do not panic. Your doctor will recommend pain medications that are both effective and safe. If you are in good health, they can be taken before the surgery and as soon as you get home. Otherwise, over-the-counter anti-inflammatories may be taken.
Usually, the surgeon who performed your surgery will give you a prescription. However, some surgeons do not like prescribing their own medications. You can ask your surgeon to give you a list of the drugs he has used. Check to see if the drugs work when taken as a whole. You can also try other drugstore brands.
Once the bleeding has stopped, you can go back to your normal life. Six weeks after circumcision recovery, you should be able have sexual intercourse. However, it is best not to have sexual intercourse until at least two weeks after the circumcision recovery. This will slow down healing.
Dr. Bidair advises his patients to avoid any exercise for at least six weeks after the procedure. The wound will be slightly bruised, and may remain open for several more days to allow the healing process start. The wound must be open for you to exercise. The wound can be covered with a bandage or dressing, but only after the stitches have been removed. You can wear loose clothes once the wound has healed so that your scar will not be visible.
Dr. Bidair suggests that patients take a vitamin supplement with Vitamin C within three days of circumcision recovery. This vitamin speeds up the healing process. Your penis will be slightly red for several days and it will be swollen as well. You may feel a little irritation when touching your penis. These are normal responses to the healing process.
Dr. Bidair strongly advises that you use pain medication to manage the swelling and pain. But you should consult your doctor first. Your doctor will either prescribe you pain medication or give you creams that will help with the pain. During the recovery period, you should not have any bandages on the penis. After you are discharged from hospital, the stitches can be removed.
Your doctor will remove your old bandage and place another one over it the day after surgery. The new bandage will become a scab and be ready to be used for stitches once you have received them. A scab can build up over time, making it difficult for the doctor to see your penis outline. If your scab doesn’t go away in two weeks, you should call your doctor to reschedule the surgery. He will probably reschedule it to another day.
It takes approximately four weeks for the wounds to heal completely. Once it has healed and your doctor has taken out the scab, he will cover the wound with an adhesive bandage. This bandage will block you from having any sexual activity within the next week. During this time, you will not be allowed to urinate or have sexual relations. It is important to follow all instructions given by your doctor during the healing process.
Your doctor will provide temporary diapers if you are unable to wear a diaper while the penis heals. Use sterile tape to apply your bandage. You should not use a shower until your stitches have been removed. After your stitches are removed, your doctor will remove the temporary diaper and replace it with a long-sleeve towel. Your doctor will also place a special sterilized ring on your shaft in order to dry the foreskin. These simple instructions will ensure that you have a smooth and painless return to normal sexual activities.
