Can I recover a arthroscopic knee surgery in 30 days or less?

Yes. This depends on what the surgery was done for. The most common knee scope surgery is done for a meniscal tear where a partial menisectomy is done and these generally recover in 4-6 weeks.
Yes, motivate! You'll certainly need to build up the muscles that attach to the knee (quads, hamstrings, calf muscles etc), and do a lot of specified therapy by a well trained sports physical therapist. But when, or if, you should go back to playing football will be related to what type of football, what level of play, what procedure u had, how well u recovered: in other words, what the 'orthopod' says.
