Thank you for visiting health24.com.
1. The pain will be bearable after circumcision. In fact, it is not painful at all and takes about 7-14 days to heal.
2. The glanspenis will be sensitive and painful to touch, due to chronic irritation and infection of the foreskin. Once the foreskin is removed, it will not be painful at all, as the irritation will resolve.
3. Bleeding will be controlled during the operation and therefore, you do not have to fear that you will bleed to death.
4. The urologist will assess your penis and decide which procedure is the best suitable one.
Unfortunately, I am situated in Cape Town and is not familiar with the specialist in the Pretoria area. You can contact your local hospital, as they will be able to provide you with the details of a good urologist.
