Tendon deteriorated with no specific injury to start the process. 2 years of pain and lots of PT and one PRP injection (was pure hell) that didn't help and made it more sore. 2nd opinion finally and the surgeon recommended a 'strayer' procedure on my calf to lengthen the muscle and take the pressure off my tendon. That worked about 80%. I can walk now and if I over do it - it gets sore. But way better than before the surgery. My tendon has scar tissue on it but is working and I can function again.
