Last week I had a medical emergency. I was not able to urinate. The head of my penis expanded like a balloon. I was in a lot of pain. When I got to the hospital they tested my blood. It was normal. Next a Urologist put a catheter in my penis to empty the urine in my bladder. The Urologist later told me that I need to be circumcised to urinate like normal. I am wondering if this circumcision is really necessary? Maybe a partial circumcision would be better. Ideally I would like to avoid being circumcised but at the same time I want to urinate like normal.
