What can I do to get rid of stiffness in the knee after knee replacement surgery?

I had a knee replacement done in June 2009. I am 85 years old now and wonder if there is any way to lubricate the parts like we do with WD40. My knee is getting very stiff? I do not wish to be billed for this question or your answer; also I do not wish to receive a bunch of emails. Thank you

Hello,

The stiff knee is quite common after knee replacement surgery. You have to start on physiotherapy to get back on usual. Consult a physiatrist and he will direct you accordingly.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

Regards,
