I went to have a cortisone injection the middle of Dec and scheduled my surgery for March 28th. Two weeks after the injection my knee swelled up just above the knee cap. After having done a TKR on the other knee I knew the routine - rest, ice, compression and elevation. After a week no improvement so I saw the surgeon (gout was already ruled out) and he didn't believe it was infected and didn't want to aspirate this close to surgery. He said keep doing what I'm doing and it should settle down in 6-8 weeks but I'm approaching 8 weeks with little improvement. My question is will they proceed with surgery if the knee is still swollen?
