In brief: Depends
It is unlikely for you to walk without aide that quickly after an acl and meniscus, though no impossible.
With an allograft (donor) all-inside reconstruction, some of my patients are walking 1 week out, but most reconstructions inhibit the quad muscles enough that you will most likely crutch or limp down the aisle. Why not postpone surgery a bit?
