Depends. Maybe swollen and sore until healed. It really depends upon what the scoping is for.
Depends. Knee arthroscopy is highly dependent on the procedure being performed along with it. Trimming a torn meniscus can lead to immediate relief and return to function while acl or PCL reconstructions take 8-9 months to recover. It also depends on your conditioning before surgery. Pain from quad weakness and tendinitis will not improve at all after surgery. It will depend more on rehab.
Bilateral scopes. Painful, sore, & swollen for several weeks, especially if on them lots.
