i tore mine about 6-years ago and had surgery to staple it back to bone. was not as bad as yours as i waited for a low time in work/fun before having it done. i think that 2.5 months is optimistic for 100% recovery as you can't do much more than about 10-lbs lifting for some weeks until it heals and then do physical therapy to regain strength and movement. i think a realistic number is something like 6-months for 100% if you have time for proper workout and even then you may have some range of motion reduction. in my case surgery was necessary for 100% strength regain but the surgery itself was intrusive enough to cause its own problems that i had to overcome. was a tradeoff risk in an attempt to keep 100% use of the arm and not have a nagging injury when i get to old(er) age
