Most patients are happy, mobile and about 70 to 80 percent recovered by one month. About 80 to 90 percent of the recovery is complete by six to eight weeks, although some aches and stiffness can persist for many months. The last 5 to 10 percent of soreness, achiness and stiffness can take a year to subside completely. But keep in mind that patient variability is great; each person has a unique recovery.
