Need advice on water retention after birth.


My baby boy is now 4 months old and ever since had him via emegency C-section because he was 2 weeks late i have been unable to shift all the water retention in my lower legs and feet, they look horrible and hurt all the time, i am unable to go out walking with my baby for some gentle exercise as the more i do the bigger and more painfull they get, i have been to the doctors twice and have been told that it is fat, i know that it is water retention as when you press on the skin it leaves an indentation, the last doctor has given me some water tablets to see if thats helps. please if anyone can help me and give me some tips and advice  i would so greatfull. xxx
