After getting circumcised (medical reasons) its now been 2 days. My penis is bandaged, but from under the glans just above the bandage (the frenulum?) it is bleeding from the stich. But not a fast rate or dripping. The blood is just there but its not blood, looks like a mix of something else yellowish/red. I don't wantr to panic thats why I posted here. The doctor said there would be some bleeding, but i don't know?
Is it normal or should i visit the doctor

I would call your doctor, especially if you're both bleeding, and (from your description) there appears to potentially be pus as well.

You don't want to end up with an infection.

Afraid I can't tell you what's normal -- without freaking you out, there really are rarely medical reasons which truly do require circumcision, so it's a dicey thing to begin with.

Opaque yellow/white would likely be pus, but clear-ish yellow that hardens is probably plasma, a part of blood, and less likely to indicate infection. I'm saying this to give you a better idea of what you're looking at, not in lieu of a doctor's advice, though.


as long as there are stars above you . . .
