slow healing ankle surgery

Inflamed or torn paraneal tendon on outside of right ankle; tried all PT, rest, drugs, etc. then surgery. Found no total sever but lots of frayed and inflamed material; cleaned it up; 5 weeks later bad infection; finally killed with second surgery and vancomyucien via pic line; wound wouldn't close; finally closed with 3rd surgery. 5 weeks later -- wound closed, no infection but pain with each step and swelling on all sides of ankle. What do next, Pls? Many thanks,. Jeff
