Need more informatio: You said you had arthroscopy, but was it just arthroscopy or arthroscopic surgery and if so what was the surgery for.Was there a tear in the meniscus and which one
recovery depends on what the diagnosis was and what was really done, you should go back to the orthopedic surgeon who did the arthroscopy and have it checked, meanwhile rest your knee and use a knee brace.
