Has anyone had trouble healing at the incision site after ankle surgery? The staples were removed from the incision on May 23. Two days later I removed the bandages and realized the wound was infected. After getting a shot of antibiotics and taking oral antibiotics for ten days I returned to the doctor for him to check on the healing process. He told me that I need a Wound VAC. My incision is not closed and two of the screws holding my plate to my fibula are visable through the open wound. Has anyone else had this problem. I am a 56 year old woman. I have had surgeries in the past and have never had any trouble healing. I do not have diabetes. I don't smoke. Other than breaking my ankle, I am in good health. I am just having a lot of trouble with the wound healing. The fibula is healing as expected. Thanks for any insight you may have.
