Having knee pain, difficulty walking. Had operation in knee due to tumour. Tried heat, ice and anti-inflammatory pills. Should I seek medical help?

For 21/2 weeks I have been having knee pain , my knee is bent and I can t get it straight, the pain is unbarable when I walk, it started at work, at first it would come and go, but one night it would not stop hurting, so I limp since then. even at night it hurts when I try to change side in bed. I have had 3 operations to this knee due to a tumor , but the pain seems different this time. I have tried heat, ice and anti-inflamatory pills that my doctor gave me for my ciatic nerve on my right leg due to 3 broken vertabre in my lower back. should I seek medical help.

hi
thanks for query on HCM
yes u need to seek medical help
u have done 3 ots there
there may be osteoarthritic changes in ur knee joint
u need to undergo arthroscopic evaluation of that knee for assessment
sciatica will not cause bent knee
it may be some meniscal injury or iatrogenic injury to that joint causing osteoarthritis now
so please consult ur orthopedician
thank u
