If they stretched/lengthened the tendon, it will take some time to strengthen and get it to respond properly. From my experience, the brain and the muscle have to adjust to the difference. The brain and muscle think they're doing what is being asked but they need to learn to think about moving more because of the longer tendon. With the open approach, you really are recovering from something akin to a hip replacement as well as the tendon surgery - two recoveries in 1 with different issues in each.
