In brief: Depends

Fluid on the knee can represent some inflammation that might be treated with medications and ice, but also could represent infection or prosthesis loosening.
If simply treatments like and ice and ibuprofen do not resolve the problem….it is probably best to get rechecked by your surgeon.
