Tendonitis: Versus patellar implant loosening or improper alignment. Try ice, rest, range of motion exercise. If pain continues then get orthopaedic eval.

It will definitely: prolong recovery to a degree as the patellar tendon is a significant part of knee stability and mobility.

Not sure what....: ..."extreme crunching" is, but if that knee was operated on nine months ago, you need to see your surgeon for an evaluation.
