I had a right knee replacement nearly 4 years ago.  2 years after the knee became painful and swollen.  It especially hurts when clinmbing stairs.  The swelling never goes completly yet the swelling andpain increase after general activity.  Should I be worried?

Hello!

Go for present day scans.

Rule out infections and follow up with your surgeon to understand the success of your knee replacement surgery.

If you need physiotherapy then you will be suggested so after an examination.

Take care!
