Reevaluation: Swelling can occur especially after a physically taxing day. If it does not improve, recommend notifying your orthopedic surgeon for followup visit. NSAIDs may be taken to help with reducing swelling
Created for people with ongoing healthcare needs but benefits everyone.

I would still avoid NSAIDS with a bone-tendon-bone reconstruction until cleared 2 do so by surgeon.
