My knee hurts me when I stand and that leg is thinner after I broke pelvis on that side. What can I do?

In brief: Exercise

The knee pain may be from a knee problem, but a weak quadriceps can lead to pain from easy fatiquability in that leg.
A thinner leg suggests a failure to completely rehabilitate that leg. The only way to do that is exercise. Walk, swim, or ride a bike.
