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,
