Question Post tramatic arthritis in knee

My husband had a knee dislocation in July,surgery to remove a large bone chip in Aug. The chip was the size of a quarter and was from the underside of his knee cap. His knee has been very weak since he still has a significant limp he has been in therapy since Aug. and though his leg is better he still limps and is unstable and stumbles alot.It is impossible for him to kneel down on the floor. We are still iceing his leg a few times a day. It doesnt hurt during the day but when night comes it hurts alot. He went to see the doctor yesterday. The doctor mentioned that he thought perhaps my husband would need one or two more surgeries to improve his knee and make it "right" again. He mentioned that the popping and grinding sound we hear when my husband walks upstair etc. is the post tramatic arthritis already starting. I have my doubts about that and feel that it is too early for it to be that already. I also am wondering what type of surgery might be done on my husband. I would appreciate any thoughts you guys might have on the subject
