In brief: Difficult to say

You describe a fairly significant knee operation and set of injuries.
It's hard to say without examining you and reviewing your studies. Your orthopedic surgeon is in the best position to answer this question. It's safe to say that your recovery will last for several months with a lot of physical therapy.

In brief: 4-7 months

Sounds like you had a high energy injury to your knee.
The rate limiting factor for recovery is the acl injury. In addition when combined with the meniscal , and mcl tear plus tibial plateau fracture you chief problem to overcome usually is the stiffness associated with all of the scar tissue.

In brief: 6-12 mos

Usually 6-7 months for pivoting type activities.
Meniscal healing may slow this down. Need to discuss w ortho who is doing the surgery.
