Hi, Dr.Dinesh,
Thanks for query.
As you know after surgery near joint physiotherapy is very important.
You have to continue physiotherapy regularly.
Go for quadricep,patellar exercises will give still more mobility and will re leave spasm and stiffness.
After some time I think they may remove plating.
Ok and take care.
