    I was scheduled for surgery and went to a massage therapist to help with the mobility and pain ( I couldn't even tuck in my shirt ) and she ended up healing me so I don't need surgery.

    I had that surgery around Labor Day last September and I played in a rugby match in early November, so it was 2 months for me.

    It depends how much a tear was there, however, and one way to tell is how many ties they put in. I had three I think. One of my business partners had fewer, and was back playing golf about a month after the surgery so it depends.

    Do the rehab, push yourself (and make the rehab people push you, they love to drag out that process!), and you'll be back soon, and glad you had the surgery. I was.
