Varies: The typical uncomplicated knee scope requires 3-4 weeks to recover from. Unfortunately, not all scopes are the same. With meniscus repair, 3-4 months are required. With ligament repair/reconstruction, 4-6 months. With cartilage work/repair, anywhere from 2-12 months. Confirm the proposed procedure to get a more accurate estimate from your surgeon.

2-6 weeks: It depends on how expensive te surgery is and what kind of activity is desired.
