Had foot scar, have complications, infected, pus discharge. On antibiotics. Help?

I had foot surgery in January (fusion) and I have been dealing with an open scar that is slowing healing. Within 3 months I was to return to work but with the complications I've been having that has been extended. I have had to go back toy doctor twice now with an infection and he put me in antibiotics and antibiotic cream. Now it's been at least 2 weeks and it's still not all the way healed and I have puss coming out of the area again. Is this normal? I really want to get a second opinion to be sure that everything is okay. Is puss ok?

Thanks for the query.
It is infected so pus will be there,
The important thing is to get the culture and sensitivity of the pus for growth of organism.
antibiotics can be given based on this for a better and faster cure
