I think if your : Having a surgery the recovery time should of already been discussed with you by your doctor. All questions relating to a planned surgery should ideally be answered before the procedure is scheduled. We don't know the size of the fragment being avulsed, nor what is meant by "arthritic changes removed" .....this question is best answered by your surgeon.
