unhealing back surgery

I had surgery on my back 19 days ago a sixteen centimeter cut.    The staples were removed 9/9  4 days ago. The wound has not heales and continues seepage.   What are possible reasons?

The most common cause of wound seepage at this stage would be some form of infection.  However, the details of the surgery you underwent, makes it impossible to evaluate other causes.  It would be best to discuss this with your surgeon.
