Had arthroscopic surgery for knee. Stabbing pain in the upper calf at night. Any suggestions?

I had arthroscopic knee surgery two months ago. Several weeks ago I began to get sharp stabbing pain in my upper calf by the back of my knee. This happens at night and wakes me from my sleep when I turn in my sleep. I cannot bear weight on my leg when getting up after sitting for ten minutes or so due to pain in same area

Thank for choosing HCM, Here your knee surgery and the pain you described here is not much related with each other, more over you had surgery, it is several weeks gone, it is for sure not post-op. complications, must be something else, postural pain first to consider,, still you can discus this with your surgeon who operated on you, Have nice day.
