Re: how long will i be off work after a knee scope
Depends on what type of job you have (sedentary, light, medium, heavy or very heavy) and what the surgery is for. There are a variety of things they can do on the knee via arthroscopy.
I'm a veteran of arthroscopy (one every 2 years or so to keep my knee functioning well and I'm only 42). The last time I had a meniscus repair, small muscle repair, and microfracture procedure. I had it on a Friday and was on my work laptop later that day (though I now know that was a mistake - I was looped up). I worked at home the followign week and then was back in the office. So I was "out" of the office 6 business days. My job is light to medium - but since I could avoid physical stuff and make my own schedule it was relatively easy to get back to work.
