"Is that all there is to a cut?"
I was not really scared, but rather excited to get the bandage off the penis. I gently rolled off the gauze, layer by layer. I expected it all soaked with dried blood, but it wasn't, only the innermost gauze layer. I soaked that with water and pulled it off very gently, millimeter by millimeter, not to cause unnecessary bleeding in case it was stuck in scab. It went very smoothly, and the more gauze I got off, the more I wondered why it didn't look black and blue and swollen underneath!
So - the whole bandage is gone!
It doesn't look scary at all. Has the doctor really cut it?! Yes, obviously he has! The cut seems higher and looser than I expected, but all in all it looks really nice. Not much of bruising and not much of swelling either, at least in my eyes, and where is all the scab? I have seen pictures from other men's circumcision, and I was prepared for a much more terrifying sight. Be your own judge by looking at the photos!
By the way, did I tell you I'm happy to be circumcised?!?!

Higher and looser than expected, I'd say, though I don't think it looks very messy!

It's an obvious swelling on the underside, but nothing that worries me at this stage.
