Re: Breaking: Punk having emergency knee surgery

Did some research on a torn meniscus and if the procedure was a arthroscopy then that is some pretty good news. In the past they would do a arthrotomy, which would put the patient on crutches for several weeks and then several months to completely rehabilitate the knee.

With a arthroscopy, Punk should be able to walk within a couple of days. I read that less than six weeks is the average time patients are fully healed, however that is average so you never know what it could be like for a motivated athlete. John Cena always comes back earlier than expected, for example.
