Quad tendon repair and recovery

The end of September, I ruptured the quad tendon while working out. Had surgery to repair the injusy. The leg is immobilized except for the time I work with physical therapy, AAROM is now at 70 degrees. I am wondering how long it will be before I can return to work. The problem is is because as I cook I am on my feet all day minumum of 8 hours. I've been told that I have to allow the leg to be weight bearing once the brace is removed. Also how long will complete recovery take for an injury like this.
