In brief: Temporarily

Depends on the type of surgery, but the goal is to use a brace to protect the knee until it heals and then discontinue the brace.

In brief: It depends.

From your question, its not clear exactly what kind of knee reconstruction you had.
It could be an ACL repair, fracture repair, or something else. In addition, it depends on how well your surgery is healing and and your rehab is going. This is best determined by your surgeon.
