In brief: One to three months
If you are returning to normal activity, one to three months should be adequate.
If you are returning to sporting activities like skiing, basketball, etc. Then more therapy would be needed to fully benefit from the strengthening exercises.

In brief: 3 to 4 months
After having your acl reconstructed, with or without a meniscus procedure, a patient is typically in pt for 3-4 months and then an independant program working on strength, agility and sports ability for another 3-4 months.
Full return to sports in most cases is 6 to 9 months.
