If a person has had total knee replacement can their pop out of place? My husband had a goal knee replacement 5 years ago

and it's making popping sounds and he says it feels like its going to pop. The total knee replacement was placed in "loose" due to a serious knee injury. The surgeon had no choice due to severe damage to the knee/leg. anyone know about this?

If a person has had total knee replacement, it is possible to pop out of place. If pressure is exerted on it, it can shift or pop to any direction. Talk to a doctor for more advice.

If extra pressure is on it, it can shift in any direction and he'll know for sure if that happens. You should get an xray on it but dont worry about it too much.

I have heard of this happening, you should get him into the Dr. to keep additional injuries from taking place.

Wow, never really thought it was possible. He's got a lot of swelling too. More than usual. Definately taking him to the hospital later on the morning. Thank you
