Arthroscopic Knee Recovery Time

I recently had BOTH knees scoped at the same time - years of sports left little meniscus and cartalege remaining, but the Doctor suggested the double scope to buy a few years.  Before the surgery I was running a 5.4 - 40 yd and now the bone on bone area and little cushion has made my sporting life go from White To Black with no inbetween.
How long after the double scope should it be before I can at least walk without pain?  I am in PT 3 times a week.
Thank you so much - never hurt or operated on before.  I am 58 years young.

Hi there!

Well, the recovery time would depend on the current knee condition/ exact procedure that was performed with arthroscopy; and could be anywhere between a few days to a few weeks. The expected recovery time is best discussed with your treating orthopedician.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
