Based on the history you have shared, it can be due to many causes including kidney diseases where kidneys doesn't excrete enough water in urine or if special protiens like albumin leak into urine causing decrease in their levels in blood. Same protien if isn't processed properly in the liver in chronic liver disease, the same swelling may occur. So you need to have urinalysis and liver and renal function tests at start.

Other causes include low heart functioning causing decreased pimping forward by the heart and more dumping backward which may cause accumulation of that fluid in the feet or lower extremeties.
