There are many TE threads with lots of information. Search especially the CharlieFedererer replies that include healing times and tendon illustrations.

On the down side of this serious injury is the risk of developing chronic tendinosis by stressing the injured tendon when it is healing. The first few weeks immediately after an acute injury may be the most critical for the quality of healing. Unfortunately, almost everybody plays tennis with TE longer than a few weeks before realizing that they have a persisting TE injury. Research the difference between tendinitis (with inflammation) and tendinosis (with defective healed tendon).
