Torn hamstring after ACL surgery


Out of all ways to pull a hamstring, I was taking off my shoe (using the toes on my good leg to push off the shoe from the back of the heel, thus having to use my leg muscles on the bad leg) when I felt a strong and very painful, sudden pop/tear (?) in the back of my leg---presumably that was the big juicy hamstring tendon? Does anyone know if this will affect the keyhole surgey I had done to fix my ACL, i.e, the graft or the hamstring tendon they took to actually make the new ACL? Any advice on how to rectify the pain any faster than just ice and stretching?
