Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern

You need to consult a general surgeon to examine the wound and if its open with wide clear margins that dont approximate easily then it can be stitched. Factors that retard wound healing including infection and any bleeding disorder should also be looked for.

Wishing you best of health
