Can be with erection: Post-operative Ativan (lorazepam) can reduce nocturnal erections which can be painful after circumcision. Pain can also be significantly reduced with pain medications.

Usually: The penis is very sensitive and therefore painful after surgery. The pain will decrease steadily after surgery. By two weeks should be pain free.

Post-circumcision pain can be significantly reduced by applying a Coban type dressing around penis. This prevents post-operative edema or swelling which is a major cause of post-op pain.
