i completely ruptured mine two seasons ago skating, i had the surgery, rehabbed like a madman and was on a snowboard 6 months later, but i had almost no strength built up yet... it's a bitch to rehab and strengthen foot muscles when they've sat dormant for 8 weeks of non weight bearing crutch movement. all your balance goes away when you start rehabbing, work balance exercises into your rehab, i paddleboarded and skated a lot during rehab to strengthen my foot muscles.. it sucks but you can't rush it, good luck.
