How can i help the healing of Necrosis. Does this look normal. Real uneasy
tummy tuckAbdominoplasty

I am 5 weeks PO. I had a breast reduction and tummy tuck. After the second week i developed necrosis. I am not a smoker or diabetic. My PS kept calling it vascular compromise. The wound is like 8inches in length and a few inches wide and real deep. He debrided the wound and has me packing it with gauze and saline 3 times a day. And now my would seems to be popping out higher on the top than on the bottom. Is there anything else i can do to help my recovery.
