stabbing pain IN POST OP KNEE

surgery was 7 days ago.  Sweelling seems to be stable, but it is puffy.  Knee is warm, since surgery, not hot.
The leg has some expected swelling.  Have been using ice requlary as instructed.  while resting a sharp stabbing pain (what you might feel if the joint was going to be seperated has occurred.  This evening the pain was extreme.

Hi there!

The swelling, warmth and the discomfort/ pain following a surgery is most commonly due to the associated inflammation and is likely to subside in a few days/ weeks. However sudden increase in pain or swelling could indicate other issues such as infections, degeneration, injuries etc. I would suggest having this evaluated by your treating doctor for an accurate diagnosis and appropriate management, if required.
Hope this helps.

Take care!
