Torn Archilles Tendon & Torn Calf Muscle


I tore my calf muscle in May 07, but not until the middle of Sept. 07, could I convince a dr. to give me an MRI on my calf, because I had felt a sharp pain and a pop when I fell.
I realize the calf muscle tears from the achiles, which I also had a torn achiles muscle, but because it wasn’t severed the ortho dr. here would not repair it.
I’ve researched the internet and all articles say that after this much time, surgery, NOT physical therapy will correct it?????
