In brief: Varies
Everyone tends to recover at different rates and with varying degrees of pain tolerance.
The most important aspects of post surgery rehabilitation are regaining range of motion, controlling swelling, and mobilizing scar tissue. It is very important to seek help from a licensed physical therapist to help with the recovery process as they are experts in this process.

In brief: You can't
This surgery requires time for the soft tissues and bones to heal.
This process continues for 3-6 months. You can improve your functional recovery by preparing for surgery with muscle strengthening exercises, then continuing the prescribed rehabilitation program after surgery. Patients who "push" themselves can get a rapid return of function.

Length of recovery has many vanles not in your or you doctors control and depends on your definition of recovered.
Best to hope for a complication free procedure. The rate of healing is individual and not in anybodys control avoiding complications.
