Q | complications
A | You will be asked to sign a consent form prior to surgery. The main complications that may occur are as follows:
- Bleeding and pain around the penis afterwards – this usually settles within 12hrs.
- Infection post-procedure – rare, but require antibiotics if persistent.
- Meatal stenosis – this is a narrowing of the end of the urethra tube where the urine comes out at the end of the penis. This is a rare complication when the blood supply has been affected to this area of the penis.
