In brief: Talk to your surgeon

Depending on the nature of the arthroscopy and the procedures performed on the joint during your case, your post op care will vary slightly.
Follow all of your surgeon's post operative instructions and if you have any questions speak to your surgeon.

In brief: Listen to your doc

Your surgeon should be able to lay out a plan of dos and don'ts based on your level or recovery.
Recovery is based on the severity of the original injury that necessitated the surgery, the complexity of the surgery and the success of your post-operative rehab program.
