Tried bike ride first time after knee scope with a lateral release, pain with swelling seen. Should I see the doctor ?

I had a knee scope with a lateral release on 12/20, right side. Been doing PT since 1/7. Started riding stationary bike at PT this week. Day after the 1st time of riding the bike, I have so much pain in my left knee! Swelling too. Been doing RICE this week but so hard to walk on the left knee. Feels like stabbing pain. Going to PT today, should I see my ortho doc. I have any about 1/30 with him

Hi there.
This seems to be a case of recurrence of swelling and pain precipitated by cycling. It might be that either you started cycling too soon or did too much of it suudenly.
RICE therapy is good along with some anti-inflammatory medication like Nucoxia 60 mg twice daily.
Do consult your operating surgeon first before starting any sort of physio again.
No point in doing physio with such symptoms as it will only worsen things.
