Urethral Stricture Following Circumcision

Dear Dr. Reed,

I have some difficulty urinating after circumcision.  Is this to be expected?  Do I have a stricture?


Dear Marvin,

If you could successfully urinate before circumcision, dollars to donuts you’ll void perfectly after the dressing comes off and the swelling subsides.  If the dressing is too tight, the head of the penis may look swollen.  If so or if more white than pink, the dressing has to be loosened immediately.
