I am an uncircumcised male and for a few years I had a reoccurring tear on my frenulum. The pain would be excruciating at times during intercourse. I went to urologist who gave me an ointment and told me to refrain from sex for a month. I did and the tear (paper cut size) did not heal. For years I battled through the pain during intercourse and I came to a point where I had enough and knew a procedure must be done. After extensive research I went to a urologist (recommended) and his recommendation after hearing my history with the tear was to have a Frenectomy. I had the procedure this past Friday and I had questions from this forum.
Healing Process: What to expect, healing time, best way to keep it wound clean, when do the dissolvable stitches go away, when can I begin to pull the foreskin back completely, when can I resume sexual activity???
Final Result: Will there be a loss of sensitivity (small or great), will there be an odd scar, will my foreskin remain retracted when erect???
If anyone can help me with my questions above I would be eternally grateful.
