Hello...well its physiological also to get swelling of ankle and feet when you are sitting position from a long time due to less cardiac return because of the position.. But there may be other causes like hypoproteinaemia,infection,lymphatic disorder,cardiac failure or kidney related issues too.. So it's better to consult a physician and get evaluated
