I had my left knee replaced in May 2017 and it is still very swollen and I am not able to straighten the knee. I can walk well but when I sit for a while I am quite stiff when I get up. I still do exercises and go to the pool a few times a week. My other knee is getting progressively worse and will need replaced also but I am unsure whether to do it now or wait till the the first knee is better than it is now. I also carry a lot of weight and I am finding it difficult to lose weight because I am not very active because my other knee gets very painful. Any advice would help because I am seeing my surgeon next week and would like to be prepared before seeing him. Also can anyone tell me if it is still possible to straighten the knee at this stage. Thanks Midge65
