Doctor-Bob :

A full Achille's tendon rupture will not heal properly without surgery.

Doctor-Bob :

If you take a chance at forgoing surgery and the result is not good, you will likely need surgery later under worse conditions.

JACUSTOMER-dy08npt1- :

your answer did not help me ?

Doctor-Bob :

can it be done, you ask...YES, it can, but beware of not doing it...the result may be poor...my advice...have the surgery done to increase the chances of a good outcome...is this not helpful because it is the answer you don't want to hear...well, it is a truthful answer, that is all I can provide.
