massive pain in my partiL knee replacement

I had a partial knee replacement on December 19 , 2013 . I always seem to have had pain with it , and have to go in about every month to have it drained . Every time I go in , the Dr takes XRays and tells me everything looks great but it doesn't feel it . I have the usual popping and grinding but tonight as I was getting up for bed , my leg locked . Then as I moved it around so I could straighten it it made a horrible grinding sound and popped three times . This also brought on a very sharp pain right where they did the surgery. If I sit I am fine but when I get up it grinds bad pops loud and is painful. And now that I am laying down I have to have pillows under because when it lays straight there is too much pain. Hope I can see a doctor tomorrow. Just missed two months of work , can't miss anymore Uggh !!

Update : went to the surgeon and they took XRays . Turns out that the plastic disc that was put in , had popped out of my knee and was just floating in there. It was too small of a disc . I've always noticed my leg felt a little sloppy and my knee would move sideways in and out . also most of the pain all along was in the area it popped out at . Well just went yesterday and had it done . The doctor said they went up two sizes . Can't test it yet because the nerve blocker is still in effect . But all along the doctor said everything was good and it was working properly even though I still had a lot of pain and had to have my knee drained every month . I will let you know how it progresses.
