In brief: Speedy recovery

TMJ arthroscopy is a procedure that is a little more involved and invasive than a lavage.
Recovery time from this surgery is several days to a week.

In brief: Pretty easy

Pretty easy if the procedure is successful.
The surgeon will want you to keep your jaw moviing. soft diet for a while. And have appropriate surgical follow up.
