Until after delivery: If you already have significant swelling, you can expect it to continue until a couple of weeks after delivery. It will probably vary from day-to-day, depending on diet, activity level and weather. It will generally get worse after delivery for a few days and finally resolve 2-6 weeks after delivery.

Depends on the cause: Redness ad swelling on the hands and feet can be due to a variety of different reasons. Have your self evaluated by a professional.
