Peggysue, it's impossible for anyone to tell you what will happen next without seeing and examining your husband.  He should be seen by his doctor and probably his surgeon as soon as possible.  Wire erosion can become problematic because, in addition to cosmetic issues and sometimes being uncomfortable it can expose the tissues beneath the skin to infection.  Wishing you the best.
