I haven't injured a ligament or torn anything in my knee, but it sounds like you need to see an orthopedic surgeon. You could have a torn meniscus or any number of injury. I had m right knee replaced and you sure don't want to go that route if you can stop it. Ask your primary to referr you to see an OS, it wouldn't hurt and it might just help.

Maybe this article can help you understand a bit better.  They basically state that if the popping does not cause pain then there is little to be worried about.  It is probably due to whatever minor damage you had to that area.  If it begins to hurt you should have it rechecked.  

I feel for you Angel...I have had a replacement also.  No fun!

Take care.

For response actually, according to doctors there is no need to surgery bcz there is minor tissue damage, but according to me i have to rechecked by qualified orthopedic surgeon
Because whenever I bend down my knee normally there is a sound without pain, I invented one method by using this there is no sound when I bend down my knee and that is by putting little bit stress with hand on lower leg on (back side Fibula) while bending down knee, then there is no sound. Now the problem is I have the low back pain on the same side where he leg problem iss. According to me there is minor alignment problem/

Just to let you know--I have pain on the outside of my right knee, goes up my thigh and my hip and low back on that side hurt me all the time, esp. after exercise.  I do have some arthritis in my knee but, also, one sports medicine doctor said he thought it might be something called IT Band tendonitis.  I did the therapy and took the anti-inflammatories, but I have had this for years now.  It only gets better if I totally rest, which is hard to do.  Any exercise flares it up.  But having fibro also complicates matters.

I have had knee surgery and my knees still pop when I extend them.  You might ask for a MRI.  I think it will be soemthing you just have to live with.
