I second the recommendation that you request a referral to a good physical therapist.
You might also check your library for some of the Leslie Sansone Walk at Home videos. They are very easy on the knees and provide as much or little of a workout as you want. I especially like the 2011 5-Really Big Miles (it's broken up into 1-mile segments) for a number of reasons, including the diversity of steps and a slightly dancier feel without complex choreography.
Good luck figuring out the problem with your leg. Don't do anything that hurts!!

Have they diagnosed what the problem is? Are the exercises difficult because your leg is weak, or because they give you pain? You might ask if your doc can give you a referral to see a physical therapist who can design a set of exercises specific to your needs.

hey guys. I was in a car accident last year at the beginning of my pregnancy. Now a year has gone by and i have my baby girl. With all that i am also now finding out about alot of injuries to my leg. I am going to the doctor alot about it and they are trying to figure out what is all wrong. They tell me to do alot of exercising but alot of what they want me to do is very difficult for me. Does anyone have any suggestions on things i can to that does not require me to be down on the floor. or doing to much squatting??
