From a direct similar experience I can recommend lots of moderate stretching exercise (without placing too much stress on it) and regular massage. It took me more than a year to recover from a chainsaw accident that severed tendons on my hand. I have gradually recovered full range of motion and after that full strength. Do not get lazy or complacent. Initial year after the operation is critical. Once the deep scar tissue builds up it is extremely hard to make full recovery without a surgical intervention.
Glad to hear you are back in the game.
What a fantastic adventure our life is!
Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle.
