Total Knee Replacement: Swelling

I wouldn't think you would have to ice and elevate for an extended time. I was just thinking you might want to try it for a period of time to see if the swelling goes down. It might be something else causing the swelling also so I guess if it were me, I would give my surgeon or care team a call to see what they suggest.

Thanks for the reply. My surgeon has nothing to say about it. He implied that it's just the way it is. He did prescribe me some Prednisone which I haven't taken yet. I think I'll try the Prednisone combined with ice for ba week and see if it improves.
