May I start by saying what a brilliant idea for a web site this is, I have only just found it. Please bare with me this is quite long. I recently faced the music and admitted I have trouble retracting my foreskin. In the past I have had girlfriends, where 'handjobs' have been uncomfortable, and I held back considerably during sex. I also found the tightness of the foreskin made the 'head' almost 'pump swell' then decrease as if it was slightly restricting the growth. Since my last girlfriend (2 years ago) I have hidden from the problem and avoided serious relationships. I had tried stretching techniques in the bath but made little progress so I went to the doctor and, although saying he had seen much worse, suggested either full circumsision or the dorsal slit cut, which I opted for the latter. I have been recovering for the past week, and although it hasnt been as uncomfortable as I thought I am looking for advice. The overall look of my penis is not a lot different but with a larger hole coming down the front. It still hasnt healed, but I have begun getting erections again, these have woken me up due to the stitching, but it is still not as loose as I expected, will the looseness increase as it heals (its been 1 week, I understand it takes about 6 weeks) I am also worried this may be due to the fact that my erect penis is so much bigger (between 6 1/2 -7 inches) than when flaccid, and on the day of the operation i was particularly cold, and my penis had considerably shrunk, would this effect the doctors operation and how far he would take the slit? Ideally I would love to hear from anyone who has had this operation. It is also said this operation makes the penis look quite bad, but apart from the slit it looks roughly the same. Thankyou for your time.
Foreskin Dorsal-Slit Operation
I obviously havn't had the operation grin but i would say that you cannot judge the look of your penis, until the swelling has gone down totally, even tho it might not looked swollen, after an op it will be................and the tightness you are experiencing is probably due to the swelling also.
Unfortunately, I haven't heard of anyone here having that operation except for full circumcisions, so you probably are not going to get much first hand responses.
