I know it's common for people in wheelchair who are paraplegic and can't even stand. Any advice on how to deal with that and to bring down the swelling?

Compression socks?

If possible, prop your legs up high for a while each day, to let gravity help pull the excess lymph and fluid back to your trunk. For example, lay on the floor on your back with your legs on a coffee table while you watch tv for an hour. That type of thing.

Ok I do that but when I get up to move around, meaning my legs are back down, my feet and legs swell up again. Wish there was a way without having to prop up my legs all day long every day for weeks.

Hey, you do have another option. Have you been diagnosed with lower extrimity edema or lymphedema?
