I just had achilles tendon repair surgery on April 29th

Patient: I just had achilles tendon repair surgery on April 29th. I have a boot so I’m not in a cast. I haven’t been putting any weight on my foot at all. I also haven’t been wearing my boot because I haven’t been putting weight on my foot. Today as I was crutching to the restroom my toe dragged the ground and I felt a sharp pain because I put sudden pressure on it. Do you think I injured it or my wound? I don’t see any bleeding through the bandage. Im worried I torn the Achilles again but I’m not sure..
