Yes it is normal to have bleeding for 2 days. Infact menstrual bleeding in terms of amount and time varies from person to person.

The swelling on your feet can be postural due to your occupation and can be prevent by taking breaks when you can walk or do some leg exercises.

Thanks for posting your query.

As you are experiencing feet swelling, make sure it is not due to constriction position causing compression of vessels and swelling. Any sprain & strain may also cause pain and swelling. Rule out Deep Vein Thrombosis, cardiac and kidney disease.

You are advised to visit your doctor and get necessary tests like ECG, urea & creatinine,TSH & T3, Doppler U/S etc to rule out conditions.

Hope it helps.

Take Care!
