In brief: Ask your surgeon...

For a copy of their protocol.
This answer depends on several things: 1) surgical technique, 2) meniscal status, 3) quad control. 4) pain, 5) swelling 6) your occupation . Your therapist and surgeon will be able to help you figure out what is best for you.

In brief: Depends.

It depends on the type of job you have.
Office workers generally go back to work about a week after surgery. If you have a physical/labor job, it may be 3-6 months.
