I know I had promised pictures on Sunday, but my days got away from me a bit. Sorry!
It’s been three weeks since I was circumcised and I have to say that I’m starting to really feel normal. My glans is still a little hypersensitive, but it’s hardly noticeable unless I’m at the gym. I still wear my jock strap for the gym, because all of the movement can cause irritation and the jock keeps my junk in one place. Things are still obviously healing and will continue to do so for a while, but they look good. I’m going to try emu oil to help promote healing and scar reduction. I also still have at least one internal suture that’s poking out in my frenulum. I don’t want to touch it, because I know that the internal ones are supposed to take longer to heal. It doesn’t hurt at all.
Above all, I’m very, very, very happy with the results. As silly as it sounds, I feel comfortable peeing at public urinals now and I would be comfortable going into a public shower, for example. It’s nice to be proud of your genitalia, rather than ashamed of it! Of course, that’s not to say that foreskin is something of which to be ashamed. I like foreskin and I think it should be kept whenever possible. However, my foreskin carried with it a lot of personal shame, because it was defective and unsightly.
Masturbation has so far been excellent. A couple of the tougher stitches left behind some tightness that causes a bit of pain, but that only seems to happen when erections start. It’s minor and goes away quickly as I reach full erection. I’m sure as things heal it will go away completely. My erections are fuller, stronger, and more sustainable than when I had a tight foreskin pushing blood out of my glans. Also, I seem to have grown by about a half an inch at full erection. This supports my hypothesis that my foreskin was “holding back” my penis. Curvature is still there, but now at least I can reach my full potential!
Orgasms are also much more intense now that I can stimulate my glans directly. I can’t wait to try sex! Too bad I have to wait another three weeks before that can happen. Sigh.
Pictures are below:
You can see in the first two erect pictures that I’ve got a bump on the left side of my penis, just below the inner foreskin and under the skin. I just noticed this bump on the weekend. I think it is thrombosis, either due to the surgery, or because I whacked my penis when I was doing snatches at the gym by accident. I’m going to ask my urologist if I should be concerned, but I expect him to tell me that it will go away in a few weeks.
