How much time is the recovery after having a fasciotomy for chronic exertional compartment syndrome?

Depends. Depends on location of fasciotomy (arm or leg), was it open or closed, was the exposed muscle grafted if it was an open fasciotomy? The best person to answer this question is the surgeon who did the procedure. If it was done in a timely manner, with no nerve or muscle injury, recovery is usually quick, a month or two.
