In brief: Depends...

Should be directed by your surgeon and therapist.
.. Dont try to speed up the healing process. Listen to your orthopedist! the post surgery/ rehab period is very very important for the complete healing process! best to you!

In brief: Depends on your work

If a desk worker and you are not having surgery, then you likely can return within a few days, although sitting may be painful.
If you have a more rigorous job, then it may be several weeks. Full recovery from a grade iii hamstring injury is usually in the 6-12 month range.
