Hello all! I am seven weeks post lateral release surgery on my left knee. Things were going fairly well until last Saturday. I still had pain and swelling, but the surgeon said that was normal. My range of motion is almost perfect. Last Saturday, my knee started cracking/popping around my kneecap. It happened 4 times on Saturday and has happened at least twice a day since then. At times, it feels like my kneecap is moving when it cracks. I asked the physical therapist assistant about it on Tuesday. He said he wasn't exactly sure what would be causing it. He told me to keep watching it. Does anyone know what might be causing this? Should I be concerned about it?
Any advice is greatly appreciated!
