Wound Care After Ileost Reversal


i am 12 days post op after having my double ileostomy reversed. I had 11 staples  with a slight opening at the end of the wound to allow drainage. I had 8 of the 11 staples taken out 3 days ago and now the wound has widened. After a visit to A&E yesterday thinking it would need re stitching I was advised to leave it, dress it and it would heal but today there is fresh blood and it seems to be wider still and I don’t know what to do. 

Has anyone else experienced anything like this before? With Easter all GPs are closed and I really felt like I was wasting nhs time when going to A&E. 

Thank you to anyone that may be able to help.
