In brief: Keep working

Everyone recovers at a different rate.
While most people are happy with their outcome 6 months after a tka, it is likely that improvement will continue for up to 2 years after surgery. What is more important is the overall trend of your recovery. If your pain is slowly improving while the range of motion and walking ability slowly improve, this suggests that more pt and time will work.

In brief: Physical therapy

Pain is abnormal.
Try great manual therapy first with muscle strengthening. If that fails, repeat a full work up.

In brief: Not yet

Full recovery can take up to a year. Assuming that you have no other symptoms and your knee exam is normal, continue with your therapy as directed.
You can always contact your orthopaedic surgeon if you have questions.
