I have arthritis in my left knee and I do weight lifting and that does not bother my knee. I think weight lifting is a good thing to do.

I do yoga - and if you have a really good instructor they should check before any class on injuries and give you specific things to accommodate your challenges and help strengthen/heal weak areas. Pilates to build core strength is also great - but again only do it with teachers that ask about injuries. Callanetics is another great exercise specifically developed by someone with a back injury and there are small movements you can do to build strength. Waterbased exercises can help with any injuries.

I have some bands that I'm going to try to use. Yes, I agree, building up my upper body strength will help burn the calories.
Thanks emoticon

I had a knee injury and find it difficult to exercise. I ride the exercise bike and walk on the treadmill.
