Sorry about your sister's condition.

All you can do is wait and see how she responds to the treatment. Usually, once the dead and infected tissue is removed, the body will begin to heal itself.

Antibiotics will help, but the surgical removal of the tissues was the most important treatment.

If there is still an infection going on, further surgery may be needed.

Proper nutrition and other supportive measures will be necessary during the healing periodss.

Good luck. Hope your sister responds to the treatment and gets well soon.
