And the recovery could not come at a better time for him, with the new Premier League campaign beginning against Stoke City on Saturday.
"I'm delighted to be back," Sturridge told LFC TV.
"It's been a long road - a bumpy one at that - but I'm delighted to be back out there and I'm thankful to God for healing my injury so quickly because I wasn't sure I'd be back for the start of the season.
"I'm fit and good to go. If I'm selected against Stoke then I'll be ready. I didn't think I'd be as sharp as I was, to be honest, so I'm happy!
"I would have loved to have scored and marked my return with a goal, but the important thing was to leave the pitch healthy with no injury or anything."
