    I had my knee replaced two years ago. I went back to normal activity gradually after 8 weeks and it took around 4 months for my pain and swelling to settle down

    I have mine replaced about 5 years ago and a revision 2 years ago. then 3 months after that they had to remove the kneecap since then I have been 100% disabled. I only have a 70° bend and they cannot do manual manipulation because they risk tearing all the tendons. I wish they'd never removed the kneecap but apparently it would not stay attached.
