Yes, of course. But in English, we never use that expression. Perhaps tired or sore knees would be more appropriate (and should be accepted as a correct answer).

What is "heavy knees"? I've never heard this expression before in my life.

heavy legs or heavy arms would be more usual - it indicates they feel heavy and hence hard to lift after exertion or due to illness even. I am guessing in Romania they might more often complain of their knees than their legs more generally? WHat i would ask is why is it the definite article heavy knees in Romanian and why do we need a 'ce'?

You use "după ce " for activities that are performed ("după ce alerg/ beau / mănânc/ se termină filmul") and "după " when naming activities ( "bea un pahar de apă după alergare / masă/ terminarea filmului")

I confirm that Romanians would also use this expression for legs and arms rather than knees.

You use the definite article for parts of YOUR body. I think this comes from Latin because I have seen it in French and Italian also

Definite article because the noun is followed by an adjective.
