FORESKIN PROBLEM AND NEED

I am 58 years old and married for over 30 years. Due to a rigid foreskin, the penis is not opening up and coming out from the foreskin. There is lot of pain if the foreskin is forcefully opened. Sexual intercourse is done with the foreskin. Sexual life is affected. However 2 children are born and are hale and healthy. Do I require cicumscion surgery at this advanced age. I am on insulin for my diabetes Type II for over 20 years. Kindly advice accordingly.
