What to do if I have a lot of pitting edema in my legs, all the way up to knees I can press and get the pitting, some days?

Edema. See your doctor. You are retaining fluid and there are multiple reasons people retain fluid, that include poor nutrition, liver conditions, and renal conditions amongst them. Compression stockings and diuretics are frequently used to manage these symptoms.
