In brief: Let me explain

The total knee is artificial dose not have any nerve ending, so it dose not heart.
Look for other possibilities.

In brief: Depends

Being overweight in and of itself should not cause pain 6 months after a well done knee replacement.
It suggests there may be another cause, as for example "her knee not sitting right" as you put it.
