Unfortunately, this is something we hear in 10-15% of patients after they have had a knee replacement, which they had hoped was going to relieve them of all their knee symptoms. The big question is what can be done about it and perhaps more importantly, what should be done and what should not be done. Our patients are always told before surgery that the outcomes are not all perfect, but it is not what you want to hear and most people think that that will only happen to someone else. If you are unlucky enough to be in the group that have persistent symptoms, your surgery will not have met your expectations and you will be hopeful that someone can put it right for you. Bear in mind that full recovery from a knee replacement may take 12-18 months to happen, so try to be patient.
