Taking meloxican after knee replacement surgery. Any anti-inflammatory medication which can be used with this?

Are there any other anti-inflammatory s that can be taken when you are taking Meloxican? I take Meloxican once a day in the morning. I had a total knee replacement 2 months ago and with all the activity in addition to the PT I m having a bit of an issue with the swelling . Is there something I can take in the evening that can help?

Meloxicam itself is a anti inflammatory , no other anti inflammatory required , but for swelling you we're facing can be reduced with serratiopepeptidase preparations two times per day along with the meloxicam.
If you were facing any other problem better consult your surgeon also to rule out any infection.
