Fans are wondering what the outcomes and circumstances of Cm Punk will amount to. The most pertinent question currently is the length of recovery. Punk will surely miss the TLC pay-per-view, but judging from the information below and provided he is left out of any physical performance on WWE programming leading up to The Royal Rumble - Cm Punk should be back and fresh enough to face the Rock. This is a great opportunity to have him focus on his promos that will set up the match at the Rumble.
When can I return to normal activities?
Patients who undergo arthroscopic knee surgery for treatment of a meniscus tear can usually return to normal activities quite quickly. Most patients take a few days or a long weekend off work. If the meniscus is removed (partial meniscectomy), then there are usually few activity restrictions. Patients can walk and move normally, so long as they don't have pain.
When can I return to sports?
It depends on your comfort level. For most meniscectomies, patients can resume their activities as tolerated. For most patients, this means returning to normal walking within a few days to a week, returning to jogging within a month, and returning to sports within 4 to 8 weeks. Some patients take longer, others are quicker.
You must check with your doctor about your specific rehabilitation, as there may be reasons to protect your knee for a longer period of time. Only your doctor can tell you exactly what your specific rehab should be.
