In brief: How long?
Muscles and tendons stiffen related to the recent surgery and inflammation.
Continued movement prevents this such as in patients that can those mobilizers. This can help. Also planned waking at night to stretch can be helpful. Make sure knee is supported with pillow during night to prevent stretch. Talk to your doctor/surgeon.
