Possibly: If the conditions that created the original knee problem have not been changed, strain/damage can continue to occur. Have your fp or orthopedic surgeon re-evaluate your knee. Keep weight down; don't torque knees when exiting a car; use caution when playing sports that involve rapid change of direction.
