Thank you for your post @nipahl. it sounds like you have accepted the challenge of what I call, "just deal with it". You have adopted a program that you follow religiously on your way to that one-year goal of making the swelling go away. The "legs up the wall" addition is very helpful. I certainly appreciate you sharing the Voltaren. I used that years ago and am glad it has been made OTC purchasable. You can get stronger content with an Rx. I used to get it in patches that I placed on my knee. Is that still available?
It is good to know about the massager and that it can help release the swelling.
Let us know what else might be helpful. Do you see a physical therapy specialist?
May you have happiness and the causes of happiness.
