I have studied your case.

There can be infection and loosening of implant.
As pre your history infection needs to ruled out by tests
You may need to investigate like CRP ,CBC,ESR,three phase bone scan.
PCR culture is very useful to find culprit organism.

If infection is confirmed then debridement is required .Persistent infection revision operation is required.

You may need revision total knee replacement.
