Brief Answer:
Type in search your health window.

Detailed Answer:

I have studied your case.

If your pain is localized to knee and surrounding then postoperative infection can be a possibility.
I will advise you some blood investigation like CBC, ESR, and CRP.
Collateral ligament instability in TKR can be a reason in this case pain will remain persistent on walking and sitting.
For chronic arthritis you can take epidural steroid shots.
Physiotherapy will work long term for fibromyalgia.
