Is healing normal?
Your incision now looks excellent. It should heal with good wound care. The surgeon did the right thing by cutting out a non-healing wound. The permanent sutures are out, your skin can heal. It may take another 6 weeks but the worst should be over.
Here’s hoping you find this helpful. Have a great day!
Make sure you optimize your nutrition with good amount of protein. That will help speed the healing.
Good luck and thank you for posting the picture.
