I require a left total hip replacement which is scheduled

I require a left total hip replacement which is scheduled in December. However, a few days ago, my lateral side of my left knee became very painful and when I touch the soft tissue area that is hurting, l just about want to cry. It is also a bit uncomfortable to straightened out my knee but I can do it. I know I walk funny due to my hip issue but I am not sure what the issue is with my lateral knee.

Yes, I am just 90 days post op myseond THR . This time on my left hip, it is so week. I stayed in an out patient facility for 12 days and had physical therapy at home 2x a week for 3 weeks. I have fibromyalgia also. Can the fibromyalgia hind my recovery?

I am 21 days out from a total left hip replacement. I am making good progress going to PT wearing Compression stockings during the day off at bedtime.

It s a week later and the swelling is the same if not a little tighter. Is this normal what should I do?
