In brief: Depends

Arthroscopy is done for many different diagnosis.
Within 2 weeks you may be fine, other times it can be a couple of months. Discusss your diagnosis with your surgeon to get a better feel on the estimated recovery for your condition.

In brief: Recovery time varies

Recover time will vary depending on many factors including age, general health of the patient, infection control, smoker or not, blood sugar control, the exact type of procedure, and post-operative and follow up care.
Discuss it with your surgeon and get their opinion as to what they feel is a reasonable recovery time for you.
