Unusual sounds on trying to rise from sitting or standing position, no pains later post bilateral knee replacement. Common?

I had bilateral knee replacement a year ago. I am doing OK and free of the old pains. No infections or problems. Both new Knees are Depuy. I am experienceing some unusual noises and pain when I try to rise from a sitting to standing position. Once I am up, NO problem and NO pains. Is this a common or otherwise reported sympton. I have talked to my surgeon about it but really did not get a definitive answer. I would like to know how other patients are doing. Can you help me or direct me to a site where other people that have had knees replaced are talking agout it? I am very active and happy with my new knees other then this minor agrivation.

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM. You have not mentioned whether your patella (knee cap bone) is replaced or not. A few percentage of patients who have not replaced their patella will experience anterior knee pain along with a some noise (as the native patella bone will be rubbing against the metal femoral component) especially while getting up from chair. If you do not have the warning signs & symptoms ( diffuse pain of entire knee, recurrent swelling, fever, local warmth , pain at rest , diminished range of motion ), then its not a matter of concern. Hope this helps
