1-2 months: Full function and range of motion can be restored as soon as 2 weeks, but full strength may take more than 2 months.

Weeks: Most patients are walking without walkers or canes in about 2 weeks or less. Most people will be sore but fully functional at 2-6 weeks post operatively. By 6-8 weeks most patients can return to higher level activity like tennis as long as the swelling has resolved for the most part. Low impact exercise can begin at 2-3 weeks after surgery including bicycle, treadmills, and outside walking.
