IIRC, most of my knee pain was due to the inflammation.
The most pain also I had was when I was in that damn CPM (Continuous Passive Motion) machine. Usually the goal is to gain 10 degrees a day. Here's a tip: don't set it for 10 degrees off the bat! Few hours in the morning on 5 degrees, then when your knee is comfortable, a few hours in the afternoon another 5 degrees. You'll thank me later.
Oh, yes, any kind of ice wrap (I used a Cryo Cuff) will certainly help reduce inflammation and increase ROM.
