RE:achillies Tendon WOUND!!

hi, i had surgery on my achillies tendon july 15th
two weeks after i had the stitches removed/the suture open up completly to a wound. now i am going to a wound care dr. I am a month and a half and still in the boot i came out of surgery with no weight bearing at all!!My doctor suggest i see a plastic surgeon so that i may have a graft done but i will need some tissues from my back removed and put in the back because some of the tissues are dead problem now is were not sure the tendon is still in tact. theres a bone /or tendon expose and no one seems to be sure what it is. is it usual for the wound to open and expose your tendon?
its my right foot when i get the boot on will i be able to drive?
my doctor isnt very thorough so i am gonna have the doctor who gave me the second opinion do whatever is needed. I oppose having another surgery if my tendon isnt connected, i will not do this surgery again i will let it heal on its on!! can you help me out!!

The proprietary gel also provides extra protective padding to help comfort the pain caused by metatarsal soreness. May be used for relieving the burning sensation under the metatarsal heads, calluses and tarsal fat pads.
