You already have two previous knee surgeries in the left knee according to the past medical history that you provided. Then in the view that you are still having problems with the same knee I strongly recommend a comprehensive evaluation, including new imaging tests (MRI) to determine which structures are having problems this time and proceed accordingly with the right treatment choice.
