Circumcision Healing Time
Yesterday morning I had a circumcision. I tried to test my erection. It was 80% erect. It is not 100% because it is swollen and still healing?
Here are some...: At this time-one day after circumcision, you should not do anything to mentally and physically stimulate the penis so to minimize and even avoid unwanted and untimely erection leading to unnecessary pain, skin edge separation, and bleeding.

Circumcision im a 50yr old male. Im thinking about circumcision because I have never pulled my foreskin back. I know my size will increase and it will be better feeling over all. Question. Is it expensive the procedure. Is it painfull the healing process
Unfortunately, : Unfortunately, circumcision will not increase the size of your penis. Furthermore, by removing the foreskin, your penis may actually appear shorter than it was before. Depending on your weight and how much foreskin is actually removed it may look quite a bit shorter (see buried penis). If you are unable to pull back your foreskin, sometimes a topical steroid cream can help you to pull it back. It is generally a good idea to clean underneath your foreskin regularly.

Here are some ...: This Q was answered 5 minutes ago as follows: What you experienced isn't unusual. The surest act to follow is do nothing but keep the surgical site as clean & dry as possible with applying the betadine solution on it with soaked Q-tip 1-2 x daily until healed.
