Last night was by far the worst night since I was circumcised. The erections just did not stop–it was like my body was just going to have a permanent erection all night. I didn’t sleep much and now I’m very grumpy.
Before I went to bed last night, though, the crusty layer on my glans peeled off (I may have helped it out). As I predicted, the iodine stain came off with the dried out skin. However, it seems as though that skin was protecting my already-sensitive head. Since I removed the skin, I’ve been dying from the sensitivity. Every time my penis bumps against anything the feeling is overwhelming.
On top of that, the stitches started to hurt a bit more last night, too. They’re all itchy and sometimes they pulse with my heartbeat. I’m pretty sure that this is part of the dissolution process, because this morning a few of the stitches fell out in the shower. I didn’t think I’d be able to feel the stitches as much as I do. I guess it’s good that they’re falling out; maybe erections will be less painful once they’re gone. However, they’re really irritating.
Today’s pictures are below:
I hope that the increased pain doesn’t mean that I have an infection. I’ve been good with the antibacterial cream and I have no other signs of infection, so hopefully I’m all good. I’ll keep a close eye, though.
