hello..
what symptoms you are telling suggest of dependent region oedema...long hours of travelling in sitting posture can cause it...its quiet normal.  ..
leg swelling may also be due to low protein content..altered kidney functioning, medications...
keep his legs in the same level as his body...avoid keeping his legs down and sitting...tk goot rest...
if symptoms doesn't subside consult a physician
