Knee pain due to fall, able to walk, pain on squatting, bending. Knee surgery done. Treatment?

I had surgery on my knee a little over a year ago and last week I fell on it. It hurt but seemed to heal fine but today I fell again and landed with all my weight on that knee. The pain was horrific but to my surprise I got up and was able to walk just fine until I tried to squat. Squatting, bending and even touching it hurts horribly. Should I see my orthopedic or just wait and see what happens?
