Wound not healing

Hi I am four months post LAR surgery. My wound is very low just above my anus and it is not healing and it is still uncomfortable. I got an infection in the wound 3 weeks post surgery that was mis-diagnosed until week 6. I was in excrutiating pain. Antibotics helped ease the pain but had to have another procedure to clean out the wound. This got me back on track and I thought it was healing well and my reversal op would be booked. Had the dye xray and my surgeon said where I had the infection the wound had not healed. He said we would have to wait another 3 months to see if it heals. The dye x-ray has agrevated my wound again and I have had 3 weeks of constant muscusy discharge and uncomfortableness. I feel like I am going backwards with the wound. Has anyone else had trouble with their internal wound healing and any suggestions on how to help it heal!
