cutting off the foreskin
I would like to know the procedure of having the foreskin from the penis removed? How does the doctor do it? Does the operation take long? How painful is it? How long is the healing process? Once removed, does it hurt when going to the toilet? Pls explain as much as possible?
Thanking you

Sam, it is done under local anaesthetic and the operation itself isn’t painful. Afterwards the glans rubbing against your underwear and the stitches pulling when you move/get an erection is the biggest problem. Good luck.
