Thank you both for your advice. I will be seeing my doctor tomorrow anyway.

Coach Denise, by the way, I've been soda free for years. Hate the stuff! LOL!

I second checking with your doctor about that before trying it. If done incorrectly, it could certainly make things worse for you, but even if done correctly, it may put too much strain on your back. If your doctor does say it's ok for you, I would recommend that you take an actual class rather than doing a video because the instructor can help you with your form and make sure you are doing things correctly. I would also recommend talking with the instructor beforehand letting them know of your health conditions and limitations, but again, check with your doctor first.

I would not start pilates without consulting a doctor first. It places a lot of pressure on your core, and does include moves that can and will strain your injuries.

Because of old, persistent injuries, I need extremely low impact exercises. Right now I use water aerobics, water jogging, yoga and walking on a level surface. I also do strength training. I have read the Pilates is low impact. Does anybody have experience with that? Will it hurt my lower back? I have 2 compressed discs in my lower spine and can't do twisting at the waist very well. I would appreciate any advice ya'll have.
