It would be difficult for us to give suggestions about what might be safe to do, without knowing the details of your condition and being able to evaluate you in person. I would ask your doctor if they would be able to give you a referral to see a physical therapist who can design a set of exercises specific to your needs. If not, finding a personal trainer in your area who's experienced with this type of thing might also be a good option.
Hope that helps,

I was diagnosed with Congenital MD as a child. It's progressed over the years, and after having 3 children, I am much weaker than I was previously. I am about 20lbs overweight, so it's not much, but I'm having trouble coming up with ways to lower my weight without injuring myself. Anyone know of any low-maintenance exercises that I could do? Unfortunately, America isn't keen on helping people with congenital degenerative illnesses, nor are my doctors much in the way of help, so I must fend for myself. Any tips?
