My husband had foot surgery a couple of weeks ago. We want to the doctor Tuesday and had the stitches removed. The was one hole that had not healed and was draining. They told us to keep changing the bandages until it stops draining. This evening when I changed it, the was a red streak around the whole. No swelling, no fever. I planned on calling the doctors office in the morning. Do we need to go to the ER now or will it be ok to wait till the office opens?

My 81 yo mother had a spinal surgery that dehisced in October. She has had wound care, a negative pressure wound vac and home health. In January a reconstructive surgeon attempted to close the wound and left a JP drain in place. All the staples and stiches have been removed but the wound is still draining about 4-6 Tablespoons per day. The bottom of the wound as looks to me like it is beginning to dehisce as well. I don t know what to do or how to help. She has been dealing with this wound since September 2016.
