It would be : helpful to know the exact surgery you had performed. Also are you certain you know the screw placement? Assuming you had some procedure on your knees, it is not uncommon to have pain when kneeling for 1-2 years after the procedure. Contact the surgeon regarding this for better information.

Yes: Depending on the type and reason for the osteotomy, screws, plates and sometimes pins are used to hold the bones in their new position till they heal.
