Knee hurts and grinds. Had keyhole surgery. Why shin is also in pain?

For about 5 years I have had grinding in my knee , not only does it sound horrible but it also Hurts too. I had keyhole surgery and was told nothing was wrong with It? And now two years later it is worse. I walk with a limp, I can t sit for too long because it locks up, I can stand for too long, and now I m getting pain in my shin too. Any idea on what could be wrong? I just can t take it anymore.
