A 28-year-old male asked:

Infected: Septic refers to infection. A septic knee has active infection inside the joint. More common after knee replacement, it is quite rare in healthy adults. Signs are pain, redness, and swelling. If you were concerned about this, you should have it checked out urgently, as it can quickly lead to significant arthritis.

Scar tissue: After your surgery, more scar tissue can form. I would recommend aggressive massage, heat and/or ice, topical ointments, and less activity for a little while. The giving way is a reflex to sudden pain in your knee. If these don't help your catching, injections or physical therapy may help.

Bursitis?: If the pain is on the outside, or lateral area of your hip, then it's likely to be bursitis. This typically responds to rest, ice or heat, and topical ointments. If the pain is in the front, or anterior part of your hip, then it may be something involving the hip joint. In that case, if rest and Ibuprofen don't help, have it checked out by your doctor.
