Knee problem for 3 years now

Good day

I hope i get some answers.

In December of 2007 I was playing cricket in the back yard with my brother .. I ran in to bowl, jumped and as i landed on my right foot, my knee just gave away and before i knew it i was lying on the ground.. after a minute or so i got up and walked but my knee felt very odd.. it started swelling a bit and got very sore .. I went to hospital and they did some tests and said nothing is wrong.. a few months went past and as i was just walking into a class room, the same thing happened.. knee just gave away and i was on the floor.. same feeling. This time around I went to see a Orthopedic Surgeon. we did sme X-rays and MRI scans.. I was booked for an op.

The doctor did an athroscopy and he was forced to cut in order to do a Lateral Release ... as I woke up the doc came to see me and i was told that i had lots of torn meniscus and he had to do a lateral relase.

about 7 months went past and in January 2009 for the first time I played some very light soft ball back yard cricket.. I was batting as I played a shot with my right leg straight - the same thing happened again. My knee gave away.. now note that this is way after i had my op.. eversince i just gave up but the last couple of days i have had discomfort in sleeping.. walking and moving around.. my knee has never felt right again...

PLEASE tell me what it sounds like ? what can it be and what has to be done to fix this ??
