Whats New About Your Knee Replacement?
By Dr. Stefan Tarlow Published: 09/23/2009
There are a few physical differences between your new knee and your old knee. For one thing, you may feel a little numbness and stiffness around your new knee. Excessive bending may tend to increase the stiffness. Your new knee may not have quite the ROM (range of motion) your old knee had. Nonetheless, you are sure to find your new knee is an improvement over your old knee.
You may also notice that you are having some trouble kneeling. Dont worry about it, though. It does not hurt your new knee to kneel. You may also hear clicking sometimes when you are bending and walking. This is just the metal parts moving against the plastic. It will become less with time. Most patients adjust to it quite nicely. It is surely less of a problem than the pain and restriction of activities experienced with a diseased natural knee.
After your surgery, your activity level will be determined by your ideal pre-surgery activity level. If you were active when your natural knee was well, you can be active again. Your new knee will bend and straighten to allow you to get in and out of cars, to climb stairs, and perform other activities of daily living.

Be careful about entering buildings with metal detectors as your new knee may set them off. Be ready to inform the security personnel about your new knee so that you wont run into any trouble.
After surgery, there are a few things you will want to do:
Take great care not to fall or become injured. If you hurt yourself after your knee surgery, you will probably need more surgery.
Consult with your orthopedist about any problems you might experience. As an MD and an orthopedist, he or she will be able to assist you in both surgical and non-surgical procedures. Additionally, the specialized training an orthopedist receives regarding the components of the musculoskeletal system makes an orthopedist the ideal person to see regarding problems with bones, tendons, muscles, nerves, joints, and ligaments.
When you go to the dentist, be sure he or she knows about your knee replacement. You must always take antibiotics prior to any dental procedure to prevent bacteria from traveling to the site of your operation and causing problems.
Take regular exercise to keep your new knee strong and mobile.
See your orthopedic surgeon annually for an examination and x-ray.
