Knee replacement

5 months ago I had bilateral knee replacement, I am having sharp pain behind my right knee. This started about one month back. It usually only happens when i am laying down, but now is happenning when I  am sitting. The pain is very sharp wakes me up.Other than this pain I am doing great, but i just want to know if this is just part of the healing process or is there a problem?

Hello!

Take rest and anti inflammatory medications for couple of days and stop physiotherapy.

Apply ice packs and start physiotherapy after couple of days rest. The pain should decrease and if not go for an assessment near your orthopedic surgeon.

Sometimes with fatigue you have sharp pain and it will decrease with rest during recovery.

Proper hygiene and proper physiotherapy is very important for your full recovery and avoiding infections.

Take care!
