Varies: If you have a large collection of blood in your knee, you will likely feel tremendously better once it is drained. But the bigger question is what exactly caused it? The specific diagnosis for that will probably tell you what will happen after your knee us aspirated.

Most likely : depending on the amount of u if removed, and how easy the procedure is and accompanying medical condition, you should be able to walk after tbs procedure. You may bs asked to use a knee brace to help in the recovery process.
