Achilles Surgery - Right

I am on day 5 after my right achilles surgery. I think my recovery is going as planned. I was on oxycodone for about 48 hours for pain. Once I stopped the pain was tolerable lying with my foot elevated but when I stood up to use the bathroom the pain was excruciating. I am also on blood thinners that i inject into my abdomen. I had my surgery done at Union Memorial Hospital in Baltimore by Dr. Greg Guyton. The surgery took place one week after the date of injury. I was playing basketball in a 3 on 3 tournament and in the last minute of the last game the tendon tore. It felt like someone had stepped on my heel. I was standing still and tried to take off when it happened. My concern now is how long will it take before I can drive normally and walk normally, I realize sports is going to take many months. I am 41 years old.
