A few days after my total knee replacement surgery on June 20th this past summer (2016), I felt a pop or click inside my knee with each step I took. I didnt think much about it then. Two weeks after my surgery in my post-op check-up my surgeon it was "intneral scar tissue" causing the clicking/popping and over time the problem would go away. I saw him last week, five months since my surgery. I told him I was still having this popping/clicking in my knee with each step i take. Now he says that it is the the metal clicking on the plastic and that it will go away once I get my leg muscles built up. The stronger mucscles will "tighten up the parts" and the discomfort and pain caused by the internal friction (and clicking/popping) will end.
The bottom line is that I think the replacment parts are loose internally. I hope a re-do is not needed.
Have any of you had this type of problem?
