    Set caloric intake to TDEE.

    Meet macronutrient sufficiency by consuming 125 grams of protein and 90 grams of fat. Compose your remaining caloric budget from whatever mix of carbs and additional protein and fat you prefer.

    Ensure micronutrient sufficiency from a diet composed in the (vast) majority from whole and minimally processed foods.

    As long as your diet is deficient, you don't need any supplements.

    No specific diet I can think of except one that puts plenty of raw materials back into the body (fat and protein), I base that on nothing of course.

    Some say L-Glutamine helps with rebuilding soft tissue but I'm pretty sure the science behind it is little to non-existent, the studies I have read seem to indicate it doesn't help too much. Either way, I still take L-Glutamine supps anyway since they're cheap. Maybe it helps, maybe not.

    Beyond that, just time.

    is there a reason for this type of diet?
    125g of protein and 90g of fat seem random...

    also what do you mean by "as long as your diet is deficient"

    Looks like a typo for "is not"

    Agree with cumminslifter fatty fish consumption or fish oil seems to alleviate some of my tendon inflammation. Making minimums on protein and fat and eating at maint. Or higher helps the body make repairs.

    In my experience adequate rest along with proper physical therapy as directed by physician are the most important factors to healing tendon issues. Good luck, tendon problems suck, hopefully you make a quick comeback.

    Exactly what I came here to say. Rest is going to be the best supplement to proper nutrition (what Pug said).

    Eating foods rich in arachidonic acid (n-6 fatty acid), such as eggs and meats, might help. It speeds up inflammation and recovery.

    You'll want to reduce EPA (n-3 fatty acid) intake, since it interferes with arachidonic acid (basically it prevents arachidonic acid from being metabolised - thus it slows down inflammation and recovery).
