yes he has been seen by my vet and she is the one that recommended the vitamin e. there is no infection so my vet doesnt want to open it as this is such a bad time of year with flies and warmth we could create more problems with possibly creating infection. beleive it or not it look better than it did when i got him. heres a pic from when i got him.

I disagree that it needs to be opened up. A bad wound will heal but the flesh will grow bigger than it should and protrude further than the skin, which will also have shrunk.
Meat tenderiser will shrink that flesh enabling the scarring to heal over the open site.

Xrays showed it hasn't healed, now you say it has? Odd, very odd.
