Be patient, it looks as everything that needs to be done is being done...
It is an unfortunate situation, but one that any patient could have. As you well mentioned, smokers and diabetic patients have a higher risk, but truth is that this can happen for various reasons.
What any surgeon can tell you here is that you are doing the right thing by keeping in touch and having wound care therapy with your surgeon. What I can tell you about any type of skin necrosis is that, by this point, it looks like an aline will pop out but, stay calmed cause after it heals it doesn't look as bad.Then if you can converse about scar revision options. Be patient, and trust your surgeon.
Good luck with your recovery,
Dr. Fernandez Goico
