Just had surgery to repair a torn achilles tendon. Wanted to know if anyone was familiar with the injury. Rehab, timeline, recovery, etc.... Anything would be helpful.

Expect 6-8 weeks off before rehab starts. Within 6-8 months you should be getting back into action, not where you were, but well on the way. This is a tough injury and you want to respect the healing process. Just my 2 cents worth.
