Day 31: Stitches

The final suture-and internal one-came out all on its own today. That means I am officially stitch free!

The scar is still pretty bumpy and sensitive, especially where I had had suture blow-outs. In fact, it seems to have increased in sensitivity since the last time I examined it. It’s not too bad, but the sensitivity does cause a bit of discomfort as I am becoming erect. The urologist assured me that this will go away with time.

Just a couple more weeks until I will feel comfortable taking it for a test drive!

    Grats… almost coming to the end of all this huh?

    I’m not quite there just yet but I’m already feeling relieved that the problem (phimosis) will no longer have any part in my life!

    • Yeah! I can’t wait to take it out for a test drive, but I know I have to wait a bit longer. I think I’ll feel done with it once I’ve gotten there.

      It’s a great feeling, isn’t it? I’m so happy to have addressed the issue and fixed it. I’m glad your healing is coming along, even if it’s not as quick as you’d like. You’ll get there soon!

    So you must be past the six week mark by now. How’s the healing come along in the last two weeks? Has the discomfort gone?

    I’m at day 30 now, around the same kinda time you made this post. One stitch remaining that the doc said should fall out in a few days. There was a very slightly open area, that’s pretty much almost gone. It’s not really painful anymore, erections have started reaching the full length they were before the op, and it’s not really painful anymore – it’s more of a slight discomfort, but I’m guessing that will go. Still a slight amount of swelling (around where the blood vessel would’ve been tied) but it’s gradually reducing.

    Also, finally starting to sleep better. Not 100% through the night, but it’s more like I sleep 4-6 hours, then maybe wake up two times or so after that when I’m less tired. Which is way better than waking 5-6 times! I guess I just wake easily heh.

    Hope things have all healed as they should šŸ™‚

    Just a quick question how long is a reasonable amount of foreskin?

    • I don’t think there’s a “reasonable” amount of foreskin. As long as a man’s foreskin doesn’t impede his sex life, then I think it’s just fine. I had difficulties with my foreskin because it was tight and very long and didn’t retract when I got erect.
