thanks Jen, all good suggestions that i will happily follow up on. i am currently in physical and occupational therapy but like working all the rest of the days - i do bring some of their exercises home and do them so that i am always improving to move on up. once again, thanks so much for your feedback i appreciate it!

Hello

You might want to check out SparkPeople's Limited Mobility Lifestyle Center, since all of the exercises here can be done from a seated position:

Would swimming also be an option for you?

Are you currently doing any strength training? I would recommend asking your doctor for a referral to see a physical therapist who can create a program to help you regain strength on your left side and address your balance issues.

Hope that helps,

Coach Jen
