Suggest treatment for a lump on the thigh and knee pain

I had torn meniscus surgery for monthss ago , I also had to have three injections in the knee after the surgery and now my leg from the thigh down to the ankle feels tight and sometime tingling, no numbness. I have the disease inclusive body myositis also and am wondering if that has something to do with the tight muscles . The knee is still swollen and feels like a slight lump or hard knot right above the knee. . When going to my six week check the PA said I could start walking even with it hurting. After four weeks of walking & &severe pain went back to see surgeon, said I should not have been walking. Been in two sessions of therapy and water and with Utla sound & leg massage. Nothing seems to be working, having to take Ivory every four hours.
