By now the bone growth into the prosthesis is likely complete and as swelling is attributed to inflammation, this makes soft tissue trauma the more likely culprit. (Hence the discussion about activity)I had cementless, which I hear can take longer for the bone to adhere to the prosthetic. Perhaps that’s contributing to my extended swelling? However, cementless is supposedly more advantageous than cemented if a revision is needed.
Any new or extreme swelling should be discussed with your doctor...and the lack of cessation of swelling (especially after resting and icing) may warrant investigation.
I don't remember alot of swelling after the first months, but I was a religious Icer even at 7 months for any aches which might account for the lack of swelling.
