Recovery after surgery
After your procedure, expect swelling and stiffness in your knee. You will wear a brace to keep the knee from bending. This keeps the repair stable and is needed for 6 to 12 weeks after surgery. It will take a few weeks until you’re able to put weight on your affected leg. Complete recovery typically takes 4-6 months and will include physical therapy or occupational therapy to achieve your strength and movement again gradually and safely.
