Patient :I had knee microfracture surgery ten months ago and have just reaced the pain free stage. However, when I walk any distance, for example one mile, I get mild aching followed by a tightness the following day. I describe the feeling as though I have an elastic band wrapped internally around my knee. Is this normal and how can I manage the symptoms?
