Dr. Mak Yousefpour answered:

Does anyone know how long a ruptured achilles tendon will take to heal?

Partial or total

Hernias
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)

How long should you wait to drink alcohol after a ruptured achilles tendon surgery if not on meds?

A very long time.

Alcohol
We know that alcohol has negative effects on your cerebellum which is related to balance and coordination. And we also know that people who drink suffer falls. It would be a rare day that I would take a chance like that after needing surgery for a ruptured achilles tendon!
