In brief: Evalaute, rehabilita
Need to know why you have knee pain.
The examination, imaging like x-ray, ultrasound, MRI and laboratory can help. If you have been at bedrest for a long time - consider very intensive physical therapy. You may have lost a lot of knee muscle tone like the quadriceps. I tell patients there is the "2 for" rule. For every day you are out, it will take 2 days to return. Get to work.
