Had benign encapsulated lipoma removed from back. Why has the wound not closed?

4 months ago I had a 5cm benign encapsulated lipoma removed from my back. For 8 weeks folloing the procedure I received wound care that included packing the wound 3 times a week with idoform because the depth of the removal prevented my wound from closing appropriately. Now, more than 4 months later, the wound has not closed, I still experience considerable pain on a daily basis and also have a black waxy discharge . On occasion the discharge is very dry, with a consitancy of sandy mud. I can not get into see my doctor for more than a week. I am female, 34,vegetarian, and my only health concern is slightly elevated BP . No diabetes , thyriod or other disorders/disease.

Thanks for query.
It seems that your wound is not healed and further infection took place.
Go for proper dressing regularly with medical hands.
Go for antibiotic medicine course.
Ok and bye.
