Knee arthroscopy - 2 wks ago swelling around Portal

Hello

Just wondering if anyone has experienced anything similar following a knee arthroscopy. 2 yrs ago had bi lateral knee arthroscopies; and required further arthroscopy on Rt knees 2 wks ago. Portal sites healing well, but under one I have odd swelling which literally looks like there is a large marble under the skin, which does not appear to be reducing, despite regular icing. Joint is still very bruised, quite swollen, but not hot or appear inflamed. Surgeon appears to have used same site as previous, leaving me to wonder if this is scar tissue forming? If so, what can I do to reduce?

Any advice would be much appreciated, should I be concerned about this or has anyone else had the same therefore normal?

Many Thanks in advance.
