Problems after a Knee Replacement

Hi everyone, so you have now had your total knee replacement. It is 6 weeks on and all went well. You were walking within the first day with a frame, you managed to get 100 degrees flexion of the knee in the first 3 days. Now you are at 115 degrees which makes it easier to get in and out of the car and work on the stationary bicycle. The surgical scar has healed well and the general pain from the surgery has been minimal. You have been doing your exercises most days, although you occasionally forget, particularly as you have been doing so well. Then a week later you start to experience some pain in the front of the knee especially going up and down stair and after sitting for a while. Your knee has also started to click when you move it.
