I presume you are: Talking about the frenulum of the prepuce of the penis (there is also a frenulum between you upper gum and lips in your mouth).

I have a short frenulum stopping me from retracting my foreskin when erect. Can this be remedied at home by gentle stretching?
I recently have been circumsised and noticed thst the frenulum hasn't been removed. I wanted a full circumsion, should my dr have cut it? Can he still?

The frenulum has a tremendous number of nerve endings in it that greatly add to pleasure and sensation and you did have a "full circumcision" even if the frenulum was not cut. Still, ask your surgeon/doctor if you are not happy with what they did. ...Read more
