Talk to surgeon: This is something you need to discuss with the surgeon who repaired the tendon. In the meanwhile, try to avoid antibiotic in the quinolone family since it may weaken your tendon further.

See your surgeon: Please see your surgeon for follow up. Conservative treatments to reduce your pain could include a tens unit or MLS Laser treatments.
