Ask his surgeon: or urologist, but pain should be controlled enough for air travel in 7-10 days. But post operative pain varies greatly among various individuals.

Ask the Surgeon: You should direct this to the one that performed the circumcision but I would think that as long as there is no longer bleeding or major discomfort, flying shouldn't be an issue.
Dr. Marius Frasie

SHOULD BE OK,: TO TRAVEL AS SOO AS PAIN IS OK, NO CONTRAINDICATION. IS THERE A FOLLOW UP VISIT SET UP?
