Thanks for posting your query.
According to description , it seems that you might develop secondary osteoarthritis
Discuss with your orthopaedic about this. You may need few physiotherapy
sessions along with prescription anti inflammatory drugs after getting yourself examined from your orthopedician.
So I advice you to do regular knee exercise as advice by your physiotherapist to strengthen muscle around knee.
Wishing you good health
