Broken heel and other foot damage

I broke my heel in two places 8 months ago. I broke it stepping down on a step I could not see. I twisting my ankle and my foot so far that the side sole of my shoe touched the side of my calf. My foot went back into place and no surgery was needed for the bones. I was not able to recieve an MRI due to a metal piece in my ear. I still can not move my foot left to right very far without it pinching extremely. I have trouble pointing and flexing also. My doctor feels I have damage in my joints, even though CT scan shows good space. My physical theropist feel I may have tenden damage. What happens if I have damaged the tendens or torn them? Would surgery be needed in either case or can it be resolved with theropy?

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
