Bone Spur going though achilles tendon

I have a bone spur going right though my achilles tendon that is very sever. I have had it now for almost 4 mos. My doc. has done every thing injections,therapy, rest, cast everything. Now he is talking about removing the bone spur. He said it was a very involved operation. He wanted it to be the very last resort. He feels the recovery time is around 6 mo. I was wanting to know if you feel there is anything else we can try. I have now started getting the same pain in my other Heel. I am a CNA so I am on my feet all the time but I have been off of work now for 4 mo. Can you also tell me your thought on recovery time.
Thanks for any info.

Gently supports the ankle by providing controlled compression throughout the joint, while relieving pressure over the malleoli.
