In brief: Wound Culture

I would recommend this if it hasn’t already been performed.
Also an imaging study to assure that there isn’t an abscess formed. Maybe a second opinion. Best of luck.

In brief: I assume that you-

-are under the care of a wound healing specialist in a wound healing clinic.
If not, that’s where you belong. Ask your surgeon to refer you to one.
