I have blood pooling around my knee that has been replaced. According to the doc it is because of the blood thinner, any simular happening out there?

I am on warfarin too, and occasionally get bruising and small veins hurting around my knees – I assume it is also from the blood thinner.

This is a potent blood thinner. You have to have blood drawn by doctor to make sure you are in a therapeutic range. If you have bruising in the surgery area keep a close eye on it. It will bleed, that is normal but watch it and if the site looks larger notify doctor.
