Ruptured achillies tendon surgery

Hi my husband had tendon surgery the end of March and the scar is still not healed. It is open approx. 1/2 inch the rest has healed. The problem is the sucture is slowly coming out and has to be cut by the Dr. Is this normal or could his body be rejecting it? He can walk on it , and has been soaking it in eptson salt.

The HealWell Night splint is designed to comfortably position the foot in a controlled amount of dorsiflexion to provide a gentle stretch to the plantar fascia and Achilles Tendon. This gentle stretch helps reduce the muscle contracture, inflammation and associated pain. It has also been clinically proven to reduce symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
