12 to 14 weeks.
3 months.
Average recovery is 2-3 months after a total ankle replacement surgery. Post-surgica swelling will persist for up to 1 year after surgery. These are estimate for a patient who does not experience any complications after surgery
Ankle replacement surgery is still evolving. Recovery will depend on the total work performed and healing of of the incisions. I recommend you discuss the particulars with a foot and ankle surgeon who does ankle replacements
