Welcome to the team Joan. I was once in your shoes. About 10 years ago or so. And two things
1) Recovery yoga is fantastic. If you can find a class it can really help because the teacher modifies poses for your condition. I could do all poses without needing to get on a floor. My local Y had a deeply discounted membership and I took the class once per week and it was a lifesaver.
2) Do what you can. The first time I took a walk I could only walk out my door and around the corner. It hurt because I knew that I was really in bad shape. I remembered a woman on Oprah who was overweight and could only walk to the mail box and back. She was walking 2-3 miles a day and had entered some races. She was my motivation. Everyday, I'd walk a bit farther than I had the previous day and over time I could walk more.
That's what I did, but You will figure it out. You can do it. Good luck to you.
