Recovery from gun shot wound to the leg

I'm sure this has been asked before, but no matter how much I looked, I couldn't find it, and I couldn't find answers on the web either.

One of my characters has received a gun shot wound to the left thigh. Bullet stuck, and was removed by a doc approximately 45 minutes after the incident. The bullet didn't graze bones. Kind of a lot of blood loss, but he received blood transfusion.

How long would it take him to recover? He's a rather healthy 24-year old, although smoker.

How long until he could walk to the bathroom on his own? How long until he could try to make short trips through the house? What about eating? What about movement of the injured limb?

He's not being treated in hospital, but a doc stops by to see him occasionally.
