Suggest treatment for severe pain after total knee replacement

I had a total knee replacement done last August. I was doing great until December... I don t know what is causing the pain I have now. It is worse than before my surgery. After being off my leg for any amount of time and then getting up, it takes me a minute or so to be able to put weight on it and walk... Then after I walk awhile it hurts. I went through PT and did good and continued the exercises as directed.
