sore scar from achilles tendon repair

Hi,

it has been a year since my surgery to repair a torn achilles tendon.

all is well, there is some swelling but I just keep off my feet when it gets bad.

the problem is the scar, it is still so sore that I can only wear back-less shoes, the slip on kind,and I must be careful not to let anything touch/knock or rub against it.
I need to know why the scar is still so sore and will it ever ge better?
Also do you know of any orthopedic brace/device that I can wear to protect it and perhaps allow me to wear regular shoes again?
Thanks
