Q22. Will I have to take time off work?

A22. This is entirely up to you. If your job is physical and involves a great deal of lifting and carrying then you might want to consider taking a few days off.

This differs if you have a desk job: but if you are seated for 8 hours a day then you may still want to take time off until your wound has healed. It helps if you can get up and walk around to ease any pressure on your circumcised penis.

If you can do this at work then only take time off if absolutely necessary. But if you are sat down for long periods of time then think about time off for the first few days after surgery.

You will experience soreness and swelling straight after this procedure which is why it is important to rest. But if for whatever reason you are unable to be away from work then take things easy the first few days.
