Ismorgan, I am almost 3 months out. I have quite a bit of soft tissue swelling. It really gets bad when I push too hard. At my 6 week check, my surgeon suggested Voltaran and that really helped. He said to give it a whirl again. He said it would take a year for the swelling to go away. I still ice and elevate. I also do most of my exercises and yoga/stretching faithfully (once for sure and maybe even twice a day). I purchased a percussion massager and go along my IT band, quads and glutes. This seems to help push out some of the swelling. I love raising my leg straight up and resting against a wall, again stretch and lushes out the swelling. I hope you find relief. Swelling is difficult.
