was there a post operative infection? Necrotizing fasciitis? What reason or what did they find to be the reason for the return for debridement?

yes I think it was a post op infection debridement . I am not looking at the op-note because is not yet done but it has to be since th date of the surgery was a month prior.
Thanks for your help
