I can't answer many of your questions, but since you are seeing him soon, why not ask him about going in and arthroscopic cleaning out the scar tissue.  You are obviously one that is forming a lot of scar tissue and just doing MUA is not getting rid of it, just releasing the contracture, albeit temporarily.  I would be asking him that for sure.  Good luck!

Hi there,
Yes I also get grinding in my TKR knee when I do my exercises and it clunks when I walk on it.
I can only imagine what's going on in there.
As for stinging - I can't say that I do. Do you mean inside you rknee or on the skin?
best regards,
