The answer

Due to the symptoms you have described we would suggest making an appointment with your GP for further medical assessment. Your GP will examine you and carry out further investigations such as routine blood tests and a stool sample if appropriate. The symptoms you are describing are unlikely to be related to any previous knee surgery and other possible underlying causes should be investigated by your doctor so a diagnosis and appropriate management plan can be provided.
