I understand your situation.

You seem confused with the doctors given advice. Buts it's clear what he said. You should not wet the wound but tourism open it and you can even clean it with hydrogen peroxide. Avoid contact wwith water that is and you can also consult a cosmetic surgeon for the uncovers or open part of the wound with which he can help you.
Take care
Thank you
