In brief: Depends
Dependent edema is improved by elevating the legs.
Compression stockings help. Occasionally a diuretic can help.

In brief: See below
You must get checked out for thrombosis ie clots in the veins of your legs as soon as possible if you have not already done so .If that is not the case, keep your feet elevated as far as possible, or get knee or thigh high compression stockings.
