How long will the recovery last for a osteochondroma removal on the inner side of my left knee? How long on crutches?

In brief: It depends on if --

--it's sessile or on a stalk,also how close to the knee.
If minimal bone is removed and the integrity of the bone is not compromised, U only need the wound to heal. Couple days on crutches then if you feel good, use a cane until healed. The ultimate decision is to come from your surgeon as we all follow different protocols.
