Doc and nurse say it takes about 10 days for recovery, I want to get back to high school cheerleading. After arthroscopy, when is it safe?

In brief: Depends

It depends why you are undergoing an arthroscopy procedure and which joint we are talking about.
If we are talking about the knee, it is reasonable that you can return to cheerleading, but it may take 4-6 weeks depending on what is done surgically.

In brief: Wait

Returning to sports will be dependent on what is found at arthroscopy and high level sports may necessitate 4-6 weeks for full recovery.
