Doctor

A:   Hi
Thanks for your query
I have gone through your query and understand your concern. It is likely that your tendon repair is tight. It is likely that you have not exercises well during postoperative period. You can do stretching exercises of knee joint for mobilisation it. You need to clinical examination for further assessment.
Hope your query get answered.
Wishing you a good health.
Take care.
