Severed lateral extensor tendon. Recovery.
I am currently a month in to treating my 23 year old standardbred gelding for a wound that almost completely severed his lateral extensor tendon and caused some nerve damage to the area surrounding it.
I realise we have a very long road ahead of us, but am wondering roughly how long it takes for this kind of injury to heal. A vet has attended to him (on several occasions), but is not particularly experienced with injuries like this so could not give me much of an idea of time frame.
