In brief: Indeterminate

The answer is a function of the nature and extent of the chondral damage and the technique employed to try to improve the chondral surface.
Thus not a simple answer. The recovery is different for procedures such as chondroplasty, pick chondroplasty or micro fracture, or oats procedure, or fresh osteochondral allograft.
