    hey all new user here nice lil forum u have here. i recently had a frenuloplasty done and would just like to share what happened. im 7.5 inches long, 6 inches girth (i think). ive always had a tight frenulum, which sometimes resulted in some discomfort during masturbation/sex. after seeing a uruologist i was told a frenuloplasty would be perfect to fix this and after 4 weeks with no use i would be having great sex finally. well after 2 years on the waiting list i finally got the operation done and after 8 weeks of no masturbation/sex one of the stitches still hadnt even dissolved so i went to my GP to get it taken out, but he wasnt brave enough so i then had to go back to the hospital to have it done. i was now told that everything was fine and that a week later i would be good as new. i had noticed a lil white line along the stitch and asked both doctors about it to which they said was completely normal and nothing to worry about. well its now about 2 months since then and this white line hasnt gone nowhere and is kindve annoying. its very slightly raised (like a bump) and is hard when pressed (like damaged scar tissue or something?). i can now masturbate although it doesnt quite feel right having a raised scar underneath my cock and im way too scared to have sex in fear that it will rip quite easily and who knows what will happen then. i will try to load some pics later on to help show what im talking about. has anyone here had a frenuloplasty and know what im talking about? i know i should just go to the doctors but after having 2 of them tell me nothing is wrong what is the point :confused:

    This was my first time ever hearing of a "frenuloplasty" and to be honest I googled it just to make sure you weren't making it up (Anyone who saw Mr. Garrison's sex change on South Park knows why). I'm not sure how common of a procedure it is, perhaps you could call your doctor or go see him in person and ask him if this is something to be concerned about? It may just be in your head, or if it really is a threat, he may have better medical advice than we could give. Hope it works out for you.

    First, welcome to lpsg uncle sam. :smile:

    It is unclear from reading your post whether or not you went back to the original doctor who performed the procedure. Was it the urologist? I would think that going to your GP would be a waste of time. Years ago I had a testicular operation in a county hospital and it was next to impossible to get back in to see the doctor who performed the procedure. The closest I could get was to see the assistant and one visit I saw someone who didn't have a clue. The gauze pad had grown into the scrotum where the stitches were. I eventually had to pull them out myself with a pair of tweezers! :mad:

    My point is that I know it can be very frustrating but I highly recommend that you go back to see the person who performed the procedure and express your concerns and explain that it is not what you expected. Let us know!

    i called up the hospital and spoke to a urologist who told me to just go see my local GP as he could pull the stitch out for me. however the GP wasnt brave enough to do it so i had to make an appointment at the hospital several weeks later to get the stitch removed. having the original operation done at a public hospital makes it a bit hard to go back and see the same doctor, not that i could even remember who he was anyway (i was originally told that i wouldnt be required to come back for a checkup or anything). im going to go see my GP about it soon just thought id ask if anyone here had gone through the procedure and maybe had a similar experience.

    Could it be a suture which hasn't dissolved?

    In general, you always wanna know who's cuttin' open your body, especially if something goes wrong. Fortunately I haven't had to make any trips to the hospital or surgery bed, but for those that do I think it'd be wise to keep track of who you're seeing just in case something goes wrong, cuz sometimes something goes wrong.

    Same thing I was told, no need to come back. I suggest you get your records and get the doctor's name, look it up and make an appointment.

    If it is scar tissue, they can inject cortozone into the scar and it will greatly reduce the scar tissue.

    Dude, it is your bloody right to consult the surgeon. It is also your right to review your health records. They are your property - the hospital is only the custodian of them. Find out the surgeon's name and make an appointment. If you get dicked around by the hospital over the phone (and you probably will) go in person.

    Also, remember that you had a surgery and most surgeries leave some kind of mark.

    it is fibrotic scar tissue. it may improve with time, but will always be there to some degree.

    You had surgery on your dick, now you've got some scar tissue. That is to be expected when you let someone cut you.
