Swollen legs after flight

9 hr flight home yesterday - overnight so didn't walk around enough I suppose. My legs swelled up by half way through - painful and swollen enough for me to have to walk bare footed through the airport - couldn't get my sliders on. Then a 5 hr drive home.

I elevated them last night for an hour before bed and that helped. Overnight, they also went down a little. I've got tons of work to do so I've been at my desk for 2 hours this morning and they've swollen up again.

What should I do? I can't keep elevating them - I have too much to do!

I find walking / moving the legs at least and drinking lots of water helps.
