welcome to HCM,
As u have mentioned about ur prob, u need to consult a physiotherapist for better treatment..
u need to go through the lumbar traction, manual therapy and flexion exercises under supervision of a physiotherapist..this will help u better.. there is no issue with ur TKR surgery..
before going for TKR surgery u shoud go for strengthening exercises for ur both knees which will help u later..
