calf pain after arthroscopic surgery

I am a 48 year old female who had arthroscopic knee surgery 5 months ago.  I started physical therapy one week later.  I had to stop per my docs instructions a couple weeks later due to pain.  After many tests (X-rays, MRI, CT scans, ultrasounds) nothing has been totally concluded.  I had a second opinion, and the new docs x-rays determined that my knee caps are both off centered.  I have had severe tightness and stiffness in my calfs (both legs).  I walk very bow legged and sometimes have to use a cane to keep steady.  Stairs are a nightmare.  I have tried different anti inflammatories, pain killers, and shots but to no avail.  I have UC so I have to be careful what I take.  This has affected every avenue of my life, including my emotional state of mind.  I don't know what else to do.  I am at my wits end.  I want my life back.  Please help!
