Hello

Go back to the doctor right away.

This is called wound dehiscense, and you don't want it to open completely and stay open.

It is not something you do something about on your own.

It might need to be cleaned and steristripped, or resewn.

Would not wait on this at all.

OK, so that is an initial answer….
