In brief: Depends

Swelling from knee surgery is common and the length of time it takes to go down depends on how extensive the surgery was and what was repaired.
Best to discuss with your orthopedic surgeon to give you the best answer for your specific condition.

In brief: 1-4 weeks

Depending on how much they had to do, how active you are, and what the pathology is- could be anywhere from one to four weeks- or longer if there is arthritis in the joint.
