In brief: Depends

Per your surgeon's instructions.
All of us use slightly different protocols for rehab.

In brief: Check with Surgeon

I agree that you should check with your surgeon.
Most people that use a cpm after an acl will start asap. With a meniscus repair your surgeon may limit how much he wants your knee to bend. It will depend on where and how big the repair of the meniscus happened to be.
