Swollen left ankle, anemia, working a lot. Gallbladder removed through surgery. Treatment?

I had my gallbladder removed last november and for the last two months my left ankle has been swelling and recently the right one as well, but once I get rest it returns normal, I must say that during the last two months or so I have been working sixteen hrs a day. I had my kidney checked and it s functioning normal,I also did a quiz for the heart and I passed it so the test for the heart was not done, I am bit anemic at times.

Hi,
The swelling around ankles that disappear on rest may be due to prolonged standing and long working hours and being anaemic the chanc of swelling is increased .
PLEASE GET A MEDICAL CHECK UP TO EXCLUDE HYPERTENSION OR ANY HEART PROBLEM THAT MAY ALSO GIVE RISE TO ANKLE SWELLING AND SWOLLEN FEET .
AVOIDING LONG WORKING HOURS AND CORRECTING ANAEMIA WILL HELP IN YOUR CONDITION .
