My sister had arthoscopic knee surgery one week ago. What should the expectation be for recovery and physical therapy?

In brief: Quite variable

This will depend upon what type of surgery you had.
Simple procedures such as a partial meniscectomy may require no therapy at all, whereas surgery to reconstruct a ligament injury may involve many weeks of formal therapy and months of strengthening and recovery.
