You mention that you are active and you don't have pain. Maybe it's the activity that is causing swelling? Are you able to ice and/or elevate your leg during the day to see if it helps?

Thank you for your reply. I haven't iced it or raised it because I don't want to spend the rest of my life doing this all the time. The swelling is annoying, but since I don't have pain I don't want to mess with the hassle of icing all the time.

This is spot on John. Especially at 10 months, any over activity could definitely contribute to the swelling. Ice and elevate for 20 minutes could be the cure!
