Partial Knee Replacement

So, I had a partial knee replacement in July of 2012. It continued swelling, remained hot, and pops every step. In December I requested to have it scoped to make sure everything was okay. I was developing more arthritis and there was more wear on the joint. It is still double it's normal size. The pain is much worse than before I had the initial surgery. It pops constantly and is getting worse. I want to have the implants removed which I know will not happen. I am guessing that my doctor will suggest steroid injections which generally last me a week. I can't sleep because the pain is so intense and NOW my other knee is hurting because of the over compensation I guess. I have tried everything and now I am desperate. Has anyone else had any issues similar to mine and if so, how was your situation treated and are you pleased with it now? PLEASE HELP!!! I am desperate!!!!!
