My Doctor said before the 2nd shot the swelling should be down, to ice it and take anti inflammatory meds like Advil. He said don't be afraid to take 4 advils 4 times a day. If there is swelling after a week or that perhaps you have fluid on the knee. you might have to get that aspirated or get an injection for inflammation. I got a shot 2 weeks before for edema under the kneecap and the swelling went down in a few days. you might ask about the shot. its painless. I just got my 1st shot yesterday and I don't have swelling at all..just keep popping the anti inflammatory meds and icing it a few times a day.
