Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
You have not told me about your ACL. Is it still torn or you got it repaired. Because if ACL is not intact, you will continue to have pain and difficulty in walking. If possible you send your MRI to me. Let me see it and i can decide whether you need any procedure. Do not walk with such knee as cartilage will get damage leading to knee arthritis.
