Have you been icing the knee? Not sure why seeing the Consultant would affect, did he actually do anything? Injection?
Is there pain or just clicking? Do you do physio or gym work etc?

Yes-I too have had the clicking noise. My OS did a CT scan and I have lost some of the tibia bone on the inside of my rt knee.My MCL gone. valgus now-super knee knocks. He advised me to wait until we see more bone healing and bone growth in my rt leg-then he wants to take out all h/w for a tkr (oct/sep 2020). History:My tibia/fibia shattered on 06/19, replaced w/h/w plates plus screws (17). I had numerous operations e.g., (facisotomy for compartment syndrome). Last one was Sep 2019 for mersa infection (debridement). All Cleared. The clicking is due to bone loss-bone/bone not aligned. Only way to fix it is w/tkr after h/w removal surgery heals. I'm nervous about the tkr and the pain. :'(
