achillies tendon tear

I hurt myself at work and have gone through extensive physical therapy to get it back to its normal function, but it was not successful.
I was even put in a stabilizing boot for a month with no success.
This accident happened in June and my most recent physical therapy irritated it even more.
My orthopedist says that a month of rest with a cast is the only solution now.
I don’t know if I can take a month off from work or that my director who is not understanding would tolerate it.
I don’t know what else to do, but I can not continue with this pain either.Any suggestions or comments would be appreciated

    Have you had an MRI? Thismight be helpful to see how far you have progressed. If no progress is noted, then a surgical repair might be indicated. Good luck.
