Help! The elephant legs/feet/cankles have got me!!

Had some swelling the past few weeks but nothing that elevating my legs wouldn't solve.

It's got awhile lit worse now and I can sit for hours and hours and they go down a tiny bit, stand up and it's all back plus more! No is fine, no sign of PE. It's just sore and a pain in the ass cause I can't move without balloon feet taking over.

Any suggestions?

I used to sit with my legs up on cushions on the settee, draped in flannels with a good sprinkling of witchhazel. Dunno if it worked, but it was August so it certainly felt better...

The day when I couldn't leave the house because my feet wouldn't go into any shoes was the day when I was officially over being pregnant, and wanted it to end right now!
