Hello Dee,The necrosed or dead tissue and debris come out by the packing and half an inch deeper wound is not worrisome (the increase in depth in first week is not uncommon). Especially when the other signs like decreased drainage and reduced redness denote better control of infection and healing. At this point of time, it is not concerning. Please do not worry.Please feel free for your follow up questions.
I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.
Thanks for using Just Answer.
