Typically you will be walking on the knee the same day as the surgery. About 1/3 of my patients use crutches for a couple days. If you are diligent with ice and quadriceps muscle strengthening, most patients are back to normal daily activities by 2 weeks. Anticipate 6 weeks until you are normal and starting back to more vigorous activities. Months of swelling or pain would be quite unusual unless there is more going on in your knee than a torn meniscus. READ MORE
Swimming is a great activity after ankle arthroplasty. It will be a while before you can get in the water though. Anticipate at least 2 weeks before you can get the ankle wet and if you are in a cast it will be 6 weeks before you can get in the water. Ask for a boot if that is a possibility. And specifically ask your surgeon what he recommends for immersing the foot and ankle. READ MORE
