Kneeling after knee replacement
cjhilly posted:
I had bi-lateral knee replacement May 2011 and was wondering if kneeling on your artificial knees is okay. I gently tried it today and now my knees hurt pretty bad. Just wondering??
Bal M Rajagopalan, MD responded:

It doesn't sound like any serious issues here, it will just take some time to get used to the replacement knees & doing certain activities. If you are moving around without too much pain and everything else seems normal, and it is just when you kneel on the knees that you feel pain, I would discuss it with your doctor but not be too alarmed. I hope this helps!
