Answer:

There are multiple reasons for continued swelling. It is important to determine if the swelling is noticeable all the time or just after activity. Since you have been experiencing symptoms a year later, it is best to follow-up with a physician for further testing. If you are not satisfied with the answers from your physician, you may want to consult another physician for a second opinion
