Post L2 Laminectomy Knee Pain

I recently had an L2 Laminectomy to remove an intra-dural tumor (totally non-cancerous thank G-d), but I've found ever since I have pain in the backs of both my knees if I sit or stand. Lying down does seem to help, but naturally I can't spend the entire day lying down. Does this sound familiar to anyone, or does anyone know anything about this?

Hello Dear,
The muscles on the back are very large and during laminectomy, undergo extensive manipulation, causing significant pain after surgery which may extend to the knees. The pain, can be managed by analgesics.What is your age?Are you on any medicines?Have you had such pain earlier?You should consult your physician regarding this.

I too just had an L1-L2 laminectomy and I do get random pains in my knees. But then, I feel 5 storeys and landed on my leg so it could be completely different, because I also broke my pelvis and had surgery on that as well.
