Hi Hans

I was about 25 days out when I had hard hard sex, and my unit got really swollen, and Dr C prescribed 600mg of Ibuprofen a day... it worked wonders for me, I was good in a few days... I also wrapped cool towels and frozen peas on it...

However, the key is not to stress out...

I would call Dr C and let them help... you\'ll be fine.

Ok thanks for the advice guys.So its day 6 and i still have the one pesky leaking entry point as you can see the fluid coming out of it in the photos.

I think its become more inflammed.I\'ve sent Dr. C some pics anyway.I\'m going to go see the local gp tomorrow and get some anti-biotics and have bought some advil/ibruprofen gel tablets.What do you think?

Swelling is normal, especially where you currently sit in the timeline of recovery. Some bruise/swell more than others.

It will turn out great I am sure! If you have any concerns I would still get ahold of Dr C , the early days are critical for aesthetics !! Wish you the best!!

Thanks for the words of encouragement mud ball.i feel a little better.i guess like a few other uncut guys i have to accept its going to look odd when Flaccid or an extreme excess of Foreskin.ill see what it looks like next time I get an erection.i managed to rescue the head and have stretched him out.it just looks like too much PMMA is collected at the head.im going to try and not get too discouraged,I know this is a marathon and there will be good days and bad.Definetly emphasises the fact that if you have a decent Girth,don\'t mess with it.i was 4.5 so I still think this was the right decision and it will work out in the end.i better get some sleep.

Oh and the leaky entry point is normal and have read it can last upto 5-6 days, the response most given to this is to keep the point squeezed , to keep from a hard spot from forming ! So the leak is most likely just fine!

I am not the best guy on here to respond but, I hope I can help a little to set your mind at ease. First and foremost I would get ahold of Dr. C for his opinion as soon as you can, to me it looks like you have retracted and the skin with pmma didn\'t so it is giving the buried look. Can you get an erection ? This is very important in the early days to help the collagen formation, as for the infection part . If does not look overly red, is it hot or do you have any burning sensation ? If not I don\'t think it is infected! I think the best thing is to relax, I have seen pictures much worse than yours during healing and within a day... Good to go!! So try to relax , get ahold of Dr C and hopefully a few more members that are much more versed in this , see this and help put your mind at ease! I am sure you are fine, while you wait I think you should try and keep it erect ! Good luck and God\'s speed!

Patience. Our members voluntarily submit photos for no other purpose but to educate and contribute to the forum, but they do so on their time and convenience. Unless it\'s been an unusually long absence from the original poster, I ask we digress from making these kind of posts... the kind I\'ve noticed a lot of our newer & low-post-count members making.
