Total Knee Replacement: Swelling

I still have swelling from a LTKR done in December 2019. No pain, just swelling. It has gone down a little bit and I've learned to live with it. My thoughts on the Prednisone… I thought that drug was used to calm down inflammation plus it's a steroid. Is there inflammation somewhere causing the swelling? Did the doc take x-rays to determine the cause of the swelling? I would opt out of the Prednisone. If the swelling isn't causing any pain that's good! Recovery from TKR can take up to a full year, more for some folks. Hang in there.

Thanks for your reply. Doc did not take x-rays. He says Prednisone may help. I don't have any inflammation other than the swelling. He really just said I had to live with it. I have no pain and good range of motion.
