This long after surgery you need to keep in close contact with your doctor.
I would recommend topical antibiotic ointment, oral antibiotics, and nitopaste cream. The antibiotics will minimize the chance of an infection happening in addition to what already is going on. The nitopaste will help with venous dilution and can help with improved blood flow.
Keep in close contact with your doctor.
I hope all works out well!
