    I had a Morton's Neuroma removed April 17th of this year. I was back to work after 1 week of being completely off my foot. When they removed the stitches 2 weeks after surgery, the wound opened back up...the entire length of the incision. We've been trying various things to get it to heal...packing, flushing, ointments, etc. About 1/3 of it has healed, but it conitnues to ooze/drain. It's a yellowish color, without odor. I have no fever and no redness. The MD says it's not infected and to just give it time...but it's been almost 3 months! They put stitches back in as kind of a "last ditch effort" on June 25th and I get them out today, but I can tell that it's not 100% closed YET! HELP!!!!
