The best person to answer all your questions would be the surgeon who treated you- he would know how bad the bone chipped etc. 4-6 weeks is the usual healing time if you are in good health and follow a balanced diet with enough protein, vitamins and minerals. I'm sure you can go to gym and exercise your other bodyparts for the moment.

knee makes " squeak" "  sound when bending it, almost as if crumbles. What can it be, how serious and won' t exercise make it worse?
