I was told at least one year for recovery by some medical professionals; up to three years by a specialist. It’s been a year and a half for me and I am still improving. I get longer plateaus than I used to but then I’ll suddenly notice an improvement. Yay!

Each case is different, so it makes sense that recovery times vary. I imagine that the recovery time prognosis is based on the average?

My “secret” is to do as many normal things as I normally can. With careful repetition, my body starts remembering how it’s supposed to move, how it used to and it gets easier and easier. That has worked so well for me. Playing tennis as you did before will, I suspect, get easier and better every time you play. That makes me smile, I’m excited for you!
