I am wondering what the average time that most people need to take off from work post "Meniscal tear removal surgery"? I have heard that some people are back to work in a few days and some a week or more. I am trying to plan out with my employer on how long I will need to take off (I have a desk job, by the way).
Most of the stuff I've read says to stay in bed for 3-5 days with the leg elevated and iced. Does this sound correct? If so, that would mean one week out of work for sure, right? Was anyone able to be up and about sooner than this?
Thanks much for any advice !
