I'm looking for low-weight bearing cardio ideas besides swimming and biking... ideas that I can easily do in my apt for a lil while (a couple months) as it was confirmed yet again yesterday that I need a High Tibial Osteotomy... and unfortunately was also told yesterday that my MRI on sat morning showed a complete, grade III ACL tear and a partial/mostly torn grade II PCL tear. Thank goodness the LCL (which was noticed on the physical exam by a PA a few weeks ago and is what prompted the first x-ray and referral to orthopedics/orthopedic surgery) is only lax with maybe some micro tears in it. I will be having a double ligament reconstruction at the same time as a larger wedge than normal for a high tibial osteotomy early to mid July (waiting for the orthopedic surgeon to seek consults w/ other orthopedic surgeons due to the complexity of my case... he even referred me out to someone else to get an outside second opinion as well due to my complexity).
I somehow am walking on this, and ran a half marathon 2 wks ago even on it (the half may have finished off the ligaments, esp the ACL). I would have had a hard time believing the ligament tears but I saw them on the MRI myself... and it is quite clear......
So I definitely need cardio ideas!!!!! as I'm at goal weight and have been since jan... down 95 to 100 pounds... and want to keep it off. Me being young, active, and fairly small weight wise is what is allowing me to have this surgery and to put off having a total knee replacement at 29 yrs old... to another 8-10 years from now.
