what is the recovery time for a kneecap replacement?

Posted by anagendina

My Orthopaedist tells me that if I have a kneecap replacement I may avoid a total knee replacement.  Sounds great to me....I totally trust my doctor.  But I forgot to ask him about recovery time.  Can't find anything online about recovery.

By the way, I had lateral release and miniscus repair on both knees on Friday morning and went back to work with no crutches or brace on the following Monday.
