You can train 5 days per week if it's smart. With that said, most injuries come from doing too much, too often. Make sure you learn to maximize every set and every workout. If you are at this point then do what you wan to do....as long as it's working.
Agreed with ^^^^^.

There are many ways to do this if you take the time to do the reading and research. If your healing always stay under 70%, the Repetition Method should be used, which essentially is 30% or less for reps within a 1-3 minute time frame, just enough to "pump" & sent blood to the muscles. What I suggest you do is have 4 lifting days, and maybe some G.P.P. days where you do light cardio just to keep blood moving. So example would be:

1Compound lift, 1 compound assist. lift, 2-3 assist lifts
Sunday-Rest
Monday- Chest,Triceps (Bench Press, Dips,PullUps, Incline Flies, Db Pull overs)
Tuesday- *Legs (Squats, Leg Press/Calve raises, Lunges, Extensions/Curls)
*(Quads,Calves,Hamstrings)
Wednesday- Rest/G.P.P (light cardio to keep the blood flowing to your legs)
Thursday- Shoulders,Triceps (Barbell Push Press, DB Arnold Press,*Delt raises
*(front, middle, rear delts) Db overhead extensions, Triceps Kick bakcs
Friday/Sat- Rest/Cardio
Fri/Saturday- Back,Biceps, Forearms(Deadlift, Row, Barbell Curls, Db Hammer)
Sunday- Rest
