In brief: About a month

Have it checked by a knee doc to make sure you didn't injure the cartilage under the knee cap though.

In brief: Varies

Recover time will vary depending on many factors including age, general health of the patient, infection control, blood sugar control, the exact type of procedure, and post-operative and follow up care.
Discuss it with your surgeon and get their opinion as to what they feel is a reasonable recovery time for you.
