To stop the pain i have to keep the knee strait and stiff. its not every day ...more like every second day. i have not been able to get to the gym, now because of the virus and the month before as i had my appendix out and the surgeon said no exercise even the recumbent bike.

    There are gentle stretches that can be done go on line and look. The aren't hard to find and you do them on the floor. Just take it easy and don't try but one or two at the beginning.

    There's also the muscle rebuild that has to be done to take the load off of the new knee. In your case, I'd try some Voltaren Gel (generic diclofenac) and heed your doc's warning. Ease off the knee for a bit but keep it active. No gym? Order a set of exercise bands. You can do all the rebuild exercises with the bands. Start with the easy one and progress up the set.
