I cut two tendons on my middle finger between the first and second knuckle. How long will it take for the tendons to heal??

    Forever. Bones heal themselves because they have osteoclasts which means they repair themselves. Tendons, ligaments, and muscles don't repair themselves. Scar tissue will form which may feel like some form of repair because it creates somewhat of a bridge but tendons cannot heal themselves. I strongly advise seeing a doctor, or specifically an orthopedic surgeon, to get an X-Ray or MRI to see the extent of the damage as it can cause permanent damage if left untreated.
