Circumcision is simple procedure which can be safely performed on an out-patient basis. You should not experience much, if any, pain. You will be anesthetized and given pain-killers after the procedure. Recovery time is approximately two to three weeks. If you are having an active infection you will not be able to undergo the procedure. The infection must be treated first and completely cured.
