Wound

It is appropriate to take antibiotics if the surgeon thinks the wound is infected.  It is also appropriate to pack an open wound until it heals.  However, if you feel the office is not giving you the attention you need, you should talk to them about it.  Most surgeons want the opportunity to treat their own complications.
