anthroscopic torn ligament surgery

Had knee surgery Nov. 17---repaired two torn ligaments---not ACL--want to know what type of pain/discomfort to expect if overuse of knee prior to complete healing--how long will it take for a sutured ligament to heal? Will excessive walking, which causes knee and leg discomfort after a long day of on my feet, cause re-injury? Any estimate of how long before the there will be no more discomfort from use?
**I am a physical education teacher, in fairly good condition, and who plays a lot of golf---any answers......
