Achilles tendon tear

Hi. I have an Achilles tendon tear for few weeks now. I have a walking boot but if this doesn’t help will I need surgery? I also have a spur and a cyst on my foot.

    Hello and thank you for your question. Do you have a complete tear, partial tear or micro-tear? If you are in a boot have you done PRP or stem cell injection as well? If not I’d definately look into that for during the time you are in your boot. If it is a partial tear with the stem cells you may be able to avoid surgery. If you have a complete tear you must have surgery. I would not leave that to scar down. I hope this helps!
