Stitches not staying, flap opened


Q: Hello,
i had undergone a plastic surgery exactly 2 months ago.
I am a paraplegic person so i had a bedsore on left of my buttock which was debrided on 24th of december last year, then on 20th february, i had a plastic flap surgery when they had covered the wound.
but the problem i am facing now even after two months is that the wound got opened after two days of surgery and the stitches are not staying there.
they put on new stitches every week but they open in two days.
please suggest me something.
Thank you
