    I had my knee replaced about 18 months ago. I still have trouble

    when I get out of bed standing on it, when I sit & try to stand up it

    hurts going up the stairs not down. I still have pain. I seen my Doctor

    for my one year post op. He said maybe I should go back to PT also I

    have been trying to lose weight not that I am that much over weight.

    It may even be the weather. I just want to stop being in pain. It is much

    better than before the surgery. I use to fall all the time. Good Luck, as

    everyone is different with their treatments.

    Have you done the full muscle rebuild work to take the pressure off the knee and put it back on the supporting musculature where it belongs?
