I have consistent swelling after 10 months. No pain and range of motion is good. I'm very active. My doc just says that's the way it is. He offered me a Prednisone prescription to see if that helped. I don't ice because I don't want to be doing this the rest of my life. Doc said they don't aspirate (drain fluid) because they don't like to put a needle in where there is metal. Anybody have thoughts?
