In brief: It varies.

Agreed. Pain is subjective and varies from person to person.
Most arthroscopic procedures will be painful for several days to several weeks and may require stronger pain medication. However, traditional anti-inflammatory pain meds, as well, as ice, and crutches will go a long way to keeping the pain manageable.

In brief: Varies

The pain depends on what procedures have been performed.
Regardless, the discomfort typically rapidly improves over the first few days after surgery.
