Ruptured Achilles Tendon

Hi there,
I ruptured my achilles tendon in left leg playing football on 06/06/07.This occured in the last 5 minutes of the game as I went to push off on my left foot.I am not as conditioned or as fit as I should be due to inactivity and weight gain.However I have recently lost a lot of weight in short space of time an started cycling,badminton an playing football.
My doctor talked me into non-surgery but now I am having doubts and becoming stressed.I do not wish for a re-rupture (who does??)and want to return to some physical excercise though in no hurry.Will look to enlist physio as soon as i can start therapy
