Have you seen a medical professional to get the injury properly diagnosed? Are you undergoing physiotherapy treatment? They should be able to tell you what is good and what to avoid.
If they clear you for it, biking is also low-impact and good for knees.

Head to a physical therapist, and ask for recommendations. If you're still dealing with this injury, it sounds like it hasn't healed, and a trip to the physical therapist can provide you with the best workout to improve the injury and not hurt it.
Unfortunately, since you're injured, no one here is really in a position to help you design a program.

Hi I am a new member, just joined yesterday. Last thanksgiving, I took a tumble and injured my knee. It has made exercise really difficult. I wondered if anyone had any recommendations (besides swimming) that might help me burn calories?
