Partial or total : If you have total rupture of achilles tendon, and have not had surgery, this will not really heal. The tendon needs to be reattached either with anchor or permanent sutures. If you have had surgery, then 12 weeks to be able to return back to daily activities. To get back to full exercise or sports, you will need a lot of rehab and longer time to heal (6 months). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
