Achilles heal-re rupture

Approx. four weeks ago I ruptured my achilles heal playing basketball..my doc. recommended surgery. Five days post opt. I lost my balance and re-tore the tendon 4 cm. After going back into surgery I am now 10 days post opt. My question is: this morning I again lost my balance and applied a small amount of pressue on the bad leg and now I am experiancing pain. What are the chances 10 days post opt. that the tendon is once again torn? I have been bed ridden for the past 4 weeks and have followed all the rules. I just want to know when the tendon starts repairing itself enough be out of the "red" zone and subject to another injury.

The Shin Splint Compression Wrap applies gentle pressure on soft tissue next to the tibia (shin bone), helping prevent additional tearing of the soft tissue away from the tibia. Compression not only reduces additional damage, it alleviates pain and enhances the healing process.
