Tendon repair surgery recovery time?

I have a torn tendon in my ankle. Since January, I've been in a boot, a cast, and I'm currently in another boot. I know I have tendinitis on both sides of my ankle and also in my Achilles tendon. I don't know which is torn. I'm concerned about recovery time of the surgery? How long will I be in a cast afterwards? Will I have to stay in the hospital? Will I need home instruction for school? Will I need to be in a boot when the cast comes off? How long? And if physical therapy is needed, how long will I need to go to that? Thank you.

Also, I'm a generally healthy sixteen year old girl, although something (I'm not sure what) abnormal showed up in my blood work.
