You probably should speak with a doctor and/or physical therapist to see what exercises are appropriate for you to get moving again. We on SP really can't provide ideas when an injury occurred as we don't want to cause further problems. Good luck!
A few months ago I fractured one of my sesamoid bones during a run. My doc put me in a cam walker for 3 - 4 weeks, followed by 4 - 5 weeks of sneakers 24/7. Since then, I've been taking it easy (i.e., little to no physical activity) and have had a few pounds sneak back up on me.
I had custom orthotic inserts made for my running shoes, but I haven't been cleared to start running again. Does anyone have any suggestions for different exercises I could do? I've done some weight lifting, but I just don't feel like that's enough to burn the calories I need to.
