In brief: Knee replacements

There are multiple causes of post-operative knee pain/stiffness after knee replacement.
Your pain seems to be located mostly in the outside of the knee. This could be from impingement of the knee replacement components on the soft tissues. Recommend getting new x-rays and consulting with an orthopedic surgeon
