It may take a while for the fluid to stop. In the meanwhile, cut salt in your diet way down. Try to elevate your legs as much as possible. There are some foods that are natural diuretics (will get rid of edema). Cucumbers are one. Caffeine is one. Then there is watermelon, parsley, cranberry juice, green tea, asparagus, fennel, beets and celery. If they continue to swell, after you've cut salt and increased these foods in your diet, then see your dr again.
