Detailed Answer:
Hi, thanks for using XXXXXXX
I have gone through the query and understand your concerns.

You need to continue all the medications you have mentioned and the recovery depends on individual ability to heal. So maintain your sugar level and aseptic condirion ariund wound area. You needs daily dressing initially and later the frequency can be reduced based on the wound condition.
For pain during dressing ask the nurse/ doctor to use lignocaine spray/lotion before dressing. This will stop all the senasation and hence there won't be any pain during dressing.

Hope this information helps you.

Wish you faster recovery and good health. Feel free to ask if you have any related queries.
