10. Will I be able to take the necessary time off?
Recovery from joint surgery can take up to six weeks, or even longer. You should expect to be homebound for the first two to three weeks after surgery. Check with your employer to ensure you can take the time off or make arrangements to work from home if that’s an option. You may also need to get help with family and personal responsibilities.
