Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
Your mother knee surgery and this condition is not related. I would suggest you to get a opinion from a orthopaedic surgeon. I think due to cramp your knee muscles have gone into spasm. I think you should do hot water fomentation, Brufen and Myospaz for pain relief.
