Achilles Tendon Tear

Began having severe ankle/heel pain about a month ago. Had a MRI done on 1/10/18 that revealed I have 50% distal tendon tear. I was placed in a stabilizing boot and was told to only take it off to bathe and sleep.
Will see MD on 2/20 for return visit. PT has been ordered to assist with training on walking, strengthening, etc. My question for any of you is, has the tendon healed on its own without surgery for you. I currently am not able to drive and at the mercy of the world with no family assistance. Husband is not sensitive to the situation I am in and is actually almost the passive abusive stage. It doesn't help that I had total knee replacement in March of this year same leg. TIA.
