Are you seeing your PS for a follow-up on this problem? He or she needs to be aware that this is happening. Do not do anything to make that incision open any more before the appointment on Monday. If you haven't called and told the PS yet I would call today.
I had my scar open up on the expanded side weeks after my final fill last year. I thought it was just some drying skin on the incision and treated it with an ointment while I was on vacation. Saw the PS when I returned and the expander was compromised and had to be removed.
If you cannot see PS until Monday use every precausion not to have that open up any more than it already has.
