In brief: Meniscus surgery rec

That really depends on if they shaved it out or repaired it.
If it was simple tear, then you should be healed, or ready for full activity before 90 days. If it was a repair and you were advised to not put weight on it, then the recovery will be much longer (3-5 months).
