Re: Anybody had knee surgery? (photography related)

The swelling & throbbing is most likely due to the accumulation of fluid ,oedema, rather than scar tissue - it should gradually reduce. You could try applying ice packs wrapped in cloth if it ever gets too uncomfortable after using the knee.

It takes time to recover after these operations. Exercise gently & don't try to force the knee into positions which increase pain & rest the leg supported horizontally on a cushion when sitting. If the knee swells further & become red & itchy it may indicate infection but this should not happen at this stage. Sometimes anti-inflammatory drugs may help but be guided by your Doctor.

Things will improve gradually ,don't be tempted to try to speed things up by over-exercising & forcing extra movement, flexibility will return when the time is right.
