Sure, follow these steps.
1. Talk to your doctor. Always follow your doctor's advice, especially if it conflicts with other peoples. They know you and your injury. Let your doctor know how often you hurt yourself this way and keep working towards a solution. Ask your doctor if it's okay at all to exercise when this happens, and what exercises are allowed or banned.
2. Reduce your diet. Set your exercise calories to 0 (unless doc says okay), and just use a dietary reduction to continue to lose some weight that week.
3. Don't panic. A week off exercise now and then is totally not a problem. If you have a pounding exercise scheudle otherwise, it's actually good to take a week off every 8 weeks! Do don't think you're going to backwards in fitness for just one week of not doing your regular routine.
