Hello there. 

I can understand your concern. 
Its a big wound which needs proper wound care. It should not be left open like this or it will get infected easily which will be very much difficult to treat.
Its a big wound and you havent visited a doctor in person im shocked.
What kind of a person are you. Take her to a general surgeon and he will suggest you further.
Do not waste any more time.
Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
