Unhappy Scared. Fall three weeks post op peroneal surgery

I got up to go the bathroom this evening (not wearing my boot) and tripped over the moulding going into the bathroom. I didn't put full weight down on my surgical foot, but enough to feel almost an electrical shock go through my foot and up my leg.
Now I'm concerned that I may have re-injured the tendon, and I'm terrified. It isn't horribly painful, so I hope that's a good sign??
I have it up and iced and will call the doc in the morning, but I was hoping for some input tonight before I worry myself sick.
Has anyone done this, and what was the outcome?
