Excruciating Tight white line after frenuloplasty watch

    Hi guys,

    12 days ago now i had a Frenuloplasty where they cut the frenulum and stitched it back up. Not only has it left a small 'skin tag' like lump just below the opening of the head, and bigger skin tag at the surgical cut half way down the foreskin when rolled back, but now where the tight frenulum was, is now a very skinny white tight line which when the foreskin is pulled back is excruciating And tight, even more painful than before i had the op. Im not sure if this is scare tissue or a smaller frenulum which was underlying.
    Does anyone have any knowledge on this or experienced the same.
    Any remedy? Or is another frenuloplasty needed?
    Cheers guys

    What did they say would be the recovery time? In fact, what after care are you getting?

    the surgeon said it would take around 2 weeks to heal. And there was no after-care given annoyingly which I was not so happy about as you can imagine.

    Its not so much the wound and stitches im concerned about, its the tiny tight white line where the frenulum originally was that's causing the sharp excruciating pain when the foreskin is rolled back.

    I will be booking an appointment with my GP soon. Maybe there's creams or injections I can get to stretch, soften or get rid of this?

    Cheers

    Ouch, on more than one level. Book that GP appointment.

    Were you offered steroid cream earlier in the process as an attempt at a non-surgical solution to the issue? That's what that does.
