Achilles tendon ruptures take time to recover from. How much and what you can do depends on the result after surgery (if you have it) &/or how you've healed over time. Pt is absolutely necessary. Check with your ortho md for guidance and timing of activities. Slow and steady wins this race.

Allow your body to heal properly following this kind of injury. Make sure you also talk to you doctor about rehabilitation, possibly with physical therapy. Start slow when you do go back to activity.
