Do I have to wait 2 years to get sensitivity back after circumcision?

Do I have to wait 2 years to get sensitivity back after circumcision?

No: You shouln't lose sensitivity in the first place unless penile nerves were cut. Main nerve supply to penis is via the dorsal neurovascular bundles which run along the penis in the 2 & 10 o'clock positions deep under penile skin.

Penile sensation: should have fully returned by now & penis should extend fully. Worst case scenario is that too much shaft skin was removed plus ? penile nerves may have been damaged during surgery. Would consider seeing an independent urologist, in an other town, who in no way is connected with surgeon who performed the circumcision. This will insure an unbiased opinion. ...Read more
