Have pain on knee. Cannot straighten or bend. Had ACL replacement and broken femur. Treatment?

I am 23 years old and have had an ACL replacement on my left knee5 years ago, 3 years ago I broke the bottom of my left femur . Just recently while walking I had stabbing pains in the bottom outside of my left knee. Now when I straighten and bend it the stabbing pains happen. I have been walking around with my knee slightly bent for 4 days to avoid the pain. What is wrong with me?

Welcome to HCM,
It seems that you might have some cartilage damage or some injury to ligaments giving rise to this problem.
Consult orthopedic surgeon and get investigations done.
After examination and investigations go for the treatment and physiotherapy as advised by surgeon.
Do not bend knee joint more.
Do not sit in squatting position.
Ok and bye.
