In brief: Yes it should

With appropriate antibiotic therapy and resection proximal to the infection, healing should proceed uneventfully.

In brief: Avg 1-2 wks

It is important for the infection to be properly treated for the wound to heal.
If you are on proper antibiotics and doing daily wound care, it should heal in 1-2 weeks. Sometimes a secondary surgery is required if there is bone or tendon exposed in the wound.
