Is it normal to have tibia pain after knee surgery?

I had knee surgery and now have tibia pain.

It can be, depending on the type of surgery. A total knee will as the appliance is hammered into the tib/fib and this causes pain for months after wards, especially arthritic type pain. Any pain following surgery is normal, however should be discussed with a physician to ensure it is not an infection or other complication.
