Lateral release knee surgery

Patient

Q: Hi I recently had a lateral release on my knee on Monday, and was told I could take my wrap off after three days the problem is since then my knee has been locking everytime it is bent. I was born with substantial knee and foot problems when I was born and my knee was actually born backwards in what they called a congenital dislocated knee. They told me where my knee cap actually sits it very shallow. This is my third knee surgery and I don't know what could possibly be going on to be having my knee to lock all the time if im standing or laying with it flat out and I move to go up the stairs or anything it just locks and when I finally do get it to bend I feel my knee cap shifting almost like a popping back into place.
