Probably you cant: You will need to see your GP for investigation into your right leg symptoms.Most likely sciatica.Your left knee surgery probably has nothing to do with it.Suggest you get diagnosed.Self treatment not likely to be beneficial (years of pain)in the long run.You probably have a disc or osteophyte nerve impingement problem.
