    I had something like that after my first knee replacement. With some movements, I could feel this band that seemed to move over the bony outside of my knee, just above the knee joint.
    My surgeon said it was caused by a tight ileo-tibial band and that the problem would resolve itself as my recovery progressed. He was right.

    This article has a picture of where the ITB is situated, together with some suggestions that may help.
