Randy,
I have spoke with people that have had this done, and there can be a long recovery.

My body shop guy, took over a year before he got everything back

My "Better Half" had surgery done on her ankle/tendon in January,
and I think she was back to work in April (prison guard at a max security).
I still think she had not fully healed.

Most I have spoke to or asked about was right around 6mo.

About 3 weeks ago, my "Better Half" came home from work and made
the comment----"Do you realize I have not complained of foot or ankle pain for about a month now."

I had noticed----but thought it was great that she finally noticed.

I wish you "better Half" the best.

Might also mention that there are a couple of things you can get (rent) to make her life much easier while she is recovering

A chair for the shower/tub, so that she can bathe without getting the cast wet.

there is also a scooter that can help her to be a bit mobile in the house, or even if she desires to go out. This particular scooter will allow her to rest
her knee on the scooter so she does not tire of holding her foot suspended.
Takes some getting used to tho.

Or-----to make sure that she does what the doctor says she should be doing
(staying down with foot elevated) you could just chain her down to the sofa with one free arm to operate the remote, eat finger food, and drink .

My "Better Half" is one of those that actually think that the earth will shift off it's axis if she does not do everything herself.

I had tendon surgery on my arm, I completely tore off my Bicep tendon from the bicep muscle. I had surgery in Mid November and was back in the Gym by mid January. I attribute it to a product called L-Glutamine that i picked up in the Vitamin Shop. Its a tasteless powder that you mix in your favorite drink or protein drink. It helps aid in the recovery of tendons and ligaments as well as gets all the aminos to the muscle for healing and recovery.

I would recommend getting her on some a few days after the surgery to aid the recovery.

Randy - the best of luck to your wife. Hopefully she has a quick and easy recovery. You WILL learn what the term 'Honey!! DO ....' and it really isn't difficult I found after my wife had an operation that laid her up for 5-6 weeks.
