Default Stitches removed, wound reopened

Recently our GSD had some lumps removed (non-cancerous fortunately), and yesterday we took her to get her staples and stitches removed. Today, it appears that one of the sites is reopening even though she hasn't been scratching or licking it at all. Should we be concerned about this? The vet told us not to worry, but it's getting a little bigger. Is this normal in GSDs? Will it heal on it's own?
