4. How long can I expect the healing process for nipple necrosis?

How long can I expect the healing process for nipple necrosis. I had a breast reduction. One side healed beautifully, the other developed nipple necrosis. The nipple has been removed and I underwent another surgery to clean it up. Now I have a golf ball size hole from the nipple to the inside of the breast. The Dr. has been seeing it every day, and using gauze and betadine solution to pack the opening. Each time he has seen me since the debridement surgery he has cut out more dead tissue. He assures me it will heal from the inside out. It looks pretty awful to me, thankfully there is no pain, but I'm not sure that is good either. Any suggestions you can tell me would be greatly appreciated.
