Circumcision Recovery – What to Expect Afterwards?
Moving along to those who seek the services of 15 Square whose sole business is dealing with those men who are unhappy with the results of their recent circumcision. They aren’t happy with the medical procedure they underwent, for any number of reasons, the process has undoubtedly had a negative affect on them physically. For some the entire experience has left them with a serious mental-physical disability, while others have only had minor reactions which can be easily overcome with modern medicine today. The following messages were sent by people who have had the same procedure, and are living proof that it can prove to be very empowering.
o “I wasn’t happy about my circumcision treatment. My doctor suggested that I take ibuprofen in order to ease the pain and swelling. I didn’t want to take strong pain medicines so I wasn’t sure I wanted that type of treatment.
o “After my first visit with my MD, I was told that the most important aspect of recovery after circumcision recovery was good hygiene. You need to ensure that your body is properly exposed to sunlight in order to heal. This area of your body needs to be exercised the most. Swimming is the best option. – Brian, New York
o “It was advised that informed consent was the best option for a successful recovery. I stated that I didn’t regret going through this process. I was informed consent was the best way for me to receive all the information I needed and choose the best method for my own unique situation.” Jacob, New York City
o “I had to deal with a lot of recovery time and pain, but it was worth it. If I had known about natural healing benefits, I would have chosen to do it myself rather than trusting a doctor. Jacob, New York City
o “I was told to stop drinking or eating right after the circumcision healing process.” I had to forgo all my usual food items due to the fact that all my stitches would be torn. Jacob, New York City
“I was required to avoid having sex for a week during my recovery from adult circumcision.” The reason my doctor gave me this advice is because he did not want me to engage in sexual activity while the stitches would be in place.” Jacob, New York City
As you can see, there is a lot of pain after and during a circumcision procedure. But it is much less painful that the common procedures performed on infants. Some medical professionals believe that only doctors and nurses who are directly involved with the adult circumcision process experience pain. However, the truth is that the vast majority of men will never experience any type of pain following a routine circumcision procedure. So you should always remember that the pain that you are feeling is probably nothing compared to what your child would go through if he were not circumcised.
A related story I heard recently was about a man who had to go through adult male circumcision. He said that he experienced severe pain during and after the procedure. According to the man, he went through six weeks of pain that was so bad that he could not even walk. This was only one of many problems he faced. He required intensive rehabilitation for several more weeks in order to regain his normal physical function. It is important for anyone who is going through such a procedure that they are careful and have someone to support them.
Others will tell you that they experienced mild to moderate pain after the surgery, but that they were able manage it because their doctors advised them to take Tylenol and other non-steroidal antiinflammatory medications (NSAIDs). These medicines can help reduce swelling due to the wounds that have been left after the circumcisions. However, the experts say that NSAIDs should only be prescribed after the circumcisions are completely healed and the patient is no longer at risk for infections. There are also creams and other topical ointments available on the market nowadays that can be used to help ease the pain.
Dr. Bidair says that while the surgical wounds heal, and the blisters dry out it is normal for the area to experience pain and irritability for several weeks. However this pain can subside if the proper care is taken. Dr. Bidair said that it is normal for the stitches and new wounds to form in exactly the same place as before. He explained that it is normal for the skin to return to its original shape and size once the healing process has completed. The new wounds that have opened in the skin can cause tenderness.
