How long does knee pain last after arthroscopic sugery i just had one done 8 weeks ago for a torn meniscus?
Depends on DJD: Most good quality studies show that short and long term recovery from knee arthroscopy is directly related to the amount of arthritis seen at surgery. Knees with minimal arthritis recover from simple partial menisectomy in 3-4 weeks, those with more advanced arthritis can take up to 8-12 weeks.
