Brief Answer:
Perinephric abscess ?tuberculous

Detailed Answer:
Hi,

Thank you for your query. I can understand your concerns.
It seems you have perinephric abscess which has been drained surgically. However still collection is present and hence pus is welling out. You need to subject draining yellow fluid/pus to culture and sensitivity test and take a course of antibiotic as per sensitivity report.
Alternatively it could be cold abscess (tuberculous infection) of kidney with a discharging sinus. -hence it is not healing up . In that case you have to also test draining pus for AFB(Acid fast bacillus) and AFB culture and sensitivity as well.
Is there any past or family history of tuberculosis?An X-ray chest PA view won't be out of place,if not done already.
