Not normal, but: any surgery has a side effects and pain is one of them. After the knee arthroscopy it is expected to have pain up to 3-4 weeks. However, there are many good painkillers for acute pain available. Please, call your surgeon for pain medication adjustment post-op appointment. You should not suffer.
