Clicking in the knee (after lateral release)

by Steven

Hello I have had the lateral release surgery done. And I had my knee cap cleaned out. I had crunching sound when I used to bend my knee. I wanted to know when I work out I hear a clicking sound from from knee cap when I do leg exercises - leg press etc., but only when I start then it stops.

They say it from the hole under my knee cap were they cleaned it out. They say it is the air from the hole were they cleaned out the knee cap.

I get no pain when I do the exercise or pain the next day - I can beat it pretty good. Just my thighs get tight then I hear it click but when I get my thighs loose the clicking calms down.

So should I be worried about it? They say no pain is a good thing - it just makes that clicking sound and it drives me nuts every time I hear it.
I always think I am hurting it.

What do you think?
