Partial Tear of Archilles Tendon

Ihave been suffering from a partial tear of the archilles tendon of left ankle since August 27th, 2002.
One of the doctors that I have seen for this condition proscribed a cam boot, but since I have mild arthritis of the left hip, when walking with the boot this aggravated my hip.
I am going down to Florida on December 7th until the end of March.
Should I have the tendon surgically repaired before I go. If I need surgery I would like to do it next week so I can recuperate before I go down to Florida for the winter. Please respond immediately by E-mail. I am seeing a doctor tomorrow morning. I had an injection to the ankle which did not help.
