Knee popping and locking after knee surgery?

See ur surgeon: There can be several reasons for your symptoms depending on your diagnosis which led to your surgery, other possible knee problems not addressed by surgery, and the type of surgery you had, along with post-op duration and course. See your surgeon to re-evaluate your knee.
