Hi. Staphylococcus infection in a diabetic might take a long time to heal. You should be careful to keep the wound clean and monitor the blood sugar regularly to keep it in check....higher sugar levels are not good, the anti diabetic medications would need dose adjustment. General principle is when sick dose increases. I think a routine has been suggested by your surgeon for change of the dressings.
