My Achilles' tendon is pretty loose but feels intact? I suffered a fractured fibula and sprained ankle, will I need surgery for the tendon?

In brief: Unlikely

i assume all these issues started with the same injury.
Withroper rehab the tendon should tighten up. I assume you were immobilized for some weeks. Due to the fracture. That should allow the tendon and ligaments to. Heal. The. Medical,provider shoulder order PT for the ankle. That will address some of these conserns.
