Wouldn't speculate: The recovery period itself will depend on a multitude of factors that only your treatment team will be aware of. These include you baseline health prior to the procedure. The duration & any complications during the procedure from surgery or the anesthesia. It will be influenced by your efforts during any rehabilitation. I would ask this of your treatment team.
