Not sure if it is a problem with the knee replacement or not. Sounds like the functional return and pain relief is not what you expected. Looks like you have some other sources of pain as well.

Most knee replacements work well and people are happy with them, but some have problems. While a replacement knee may not feel the same as you natural knee, you should not be having the pain you are describing. I think you need to go back to your orthopedic surgeon and find out what might be wrong.
