I know knee pain, believe me. Two years ago, I ruptured my ACL and had ACL reconstructive surgery, Six months later, I had a total knee replacement on the other leg, due to horrible bone-on-bone conditions. I am almost fully recovered, but I still experience knee pain every now and then, particularly when the weather changes.

its because of the implant used in the reconstructive surgery and as the weather changes or it tends to be cooler or cloudy the pain aggravates due to muscle arteries etc tends to contract in order to retain heat that causes pain

I know about pain I had a hip replacement because of arthritis …like two rough pieces of . sandpaper rubbing together. …ouch…. My knees are starting ache with age…..I am doing all I can to preserve them for as long as I can.
