ruptured achilles tendon

I am a 32 year old male. Iruptured my achilles tendon playing flag football. I workout with weights, play golf and/or run regularly, but rarely play any contact sports. I have had several different opinions on my achilles. I have a void of about 50-70%, but my strenght is very high and pain is minimal. Would you recommend surgery or a more conservative approach. Everything I read seems to point to surgery, but with no hard facts to support the push. Rerupture rate is a bit higher with a conservartive approach, but not much.

Thanks for your help!
