In brief: Little different

The athlete know about exercise and have more tolerance , and he want to go back to his or her sport.

In brief: Recovery time varies

Recover time will vary depending on many factors including age, general health of the patient, infection control, smoker or not, blood sugar control, the exact type of procedure, and post-operative and follow up care.
Discuss it with your surgeon and get their opinion as to what they feel is a reasonable recovery time for you.
