Elevate & compress: The best self treatment would be to elevate your feet (above your heart) when sitting & elevate the foot of the bed while sleeping. Also compression stockings should be applied every morning before getting out of bed.

Compression: Talk with your medical doctor about your pulmonary edema. For your feet, compression stockings is the number one way to help, elevation when not walking and walking all help.
