No pain after doing TKR. Second visit necessary?

I had TKR done in March of this year. My first post=op exam went well, the x-rays showed all was fine. I have no pain. I am scheduled to see the surgeon for a 4 month check up (no x-rays) needed and I m just wondering if it is totally necessry for this visit. When I had the other knee done, the 4 month check-up was a how are you feeling, okay, see you in one year. What do you think?
