Hi, Anon.

Thank you for your post.

It can be several weeks. Surgery to repair a torn meniscus involves rehabilitation, although it varies depending on the injury, the type of surgery, your general health, and your orthopedist's preference. In general, meniscus surgery is followed by a period of rest, walking, and selected exercises.
