Little bit of background: 8 years ago I was in a car accident that resulted with me having a dislocated ankle and broken tibia bone at the ankle. With a little hardware (plates and pins) and an amazing surgeon with a terrible bedside manner, I was lucky enough to have it fixed with very few problems. Throughout the years I can tell you when it's going to be cold or damp just by the ache I feel in my ankle. But the other night, after running for the first time on the treadmill earlier that day, I had shifted my weight as I got into bed. It has hurt pretty bad since then.
Now before you say "man, you should see a doctor" I'll just say I have an appointment with the original surgeon who fixed it. But until then, I'd like to know if there are any very low impact exercises I can do as cardio. I've worked so hard to lose the weight I've lost and I'm so afraid that this is going to be more than just a little setback. Of course I can manage my diet, but without exercise I worry I won't be able to maintain my weight loss let alone LOSE weight. So what can I do? It does hurt some to walk, but I think if I take my time that is always an option.
Thanks so much for reading! Opinions and advice are appreciated :)
