How long does the pain last after having knee surgery?

The pain is so bad right now everytime I go up 3 or 4 steps; I can't imagine going through therapy after surgery. The muscles nearly kill me with pain. My second leg is beginning to burn on one side of my knee; just trying to get up the few steps..

I really dread going to the doctor next week.

    It should be much better in two to three weeks and will get steadily better after that.
