Yes, but depends on. Final outcome of surgery will depend upon the degree and nature of the problem, and as determined by ortho. Ligament reconstruction 2-8 wks. Amount and intensity of weight bearing, returning to work, kind & intensity of activity/sports, may be few weeks. If cartilage gone, full recovery-never. May have to avoid spec sport, limit to low impact, change lifestyle. Follow-up with ortho will determine.
After a knee reconstruction on my ACL & meniscus. How long will it take for me to be able to play sports?
About 6 months. You should expect to get back to full activity around 6 months if all goes well. Many patients will take a year to fully recover.
8-9 months. Return to cutting sports after acl reconstruction is currently a controversial topic. It takes 7-8 months after reconstruction for a autograft (your own tendon) to reincorporate, and it takes 8-9 months after an allograft (donor tendon) to reincorporate. Retear rates after early return to sports is higher, so a conservative 8-9 months is recommended.
