Tuberculous Synovitis of left knee


Q: Sir/Mam,
I recently got to know that i have tuberculous synovitis in my left knee. the octor did the surgery and then after 2 weeks of rest. i started to walk again with knee cap on but then after a week, there was even more swelling than before the surgery happened. the doctor said it is due to over-walking. adn gave me 2 month of bed rest with braces on. i just wanna ask how much time the synovial fluid in my knee would take to get back to the normal and in how much time i'll be able to walk normally (Without brace)?
operation was done on 13th march.

Thank u for the reply!
