Mike's right – depending on the position you are considering, recent
knee surgery doesn't automatically preclude a PQ. I had an operation
on my knee last May & went to the ice in October.
If interested in pursuing it, I'd suggest asking your orthopedist to
write a letter stating the reason for the operation, what was done,
the current status of your knee, projected condition at time of
deployment, and any expected restrictions or limitations. That should
be enough to clear you for most desk or non-physical jobs.
