In brief: Which tendon?

After surgery (in the hand), a tendon needs to be protected for about 8 weeks.
The complete healing with remodeling of the scar tissue will take longer. Final outcome betwen 6 and 8 months.

In brief: Depends

In general tendons can take 3-6 months to fully heal.
Depending on which tendon is torn the treatment can vary.
