Physiotherapy can help.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query.
The knee pain that has not improved after surgery can be due to arthritic changes in the knee joint.The pain can be helped by taking joint lubricant supplements along with pain killers after consulting your orthopedic surgeon and start with physiotherapy exercise to help reduce the stiffness.
I hope this answers your query.
In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out.
Wishing you good health.

I really do not think the problem is the knee joint. The pain is behind my knee and up the back of my thigh. The knee joint does not hurt when I'm just sitting, But the pain that goes up my thigh is there all the time. I've had both hips replaced and the kind of pain I have now is not the same as the kind of pain I had before my hip surgery, that's why I really don't think it's the knee joint. Is there some other kind of position that I should see?

Brief Answer:
Can be a muscle pain.

Hello.
Thanks for writing again.
The pain that you have elaborated can be a muscle pain also or due to mild loosening of the implant. You need to consult your orthopedician for a detailed examination.
Hope my answer is helpful.
