This is definitely a site to get help, support, ideas and motivation!

There are a number of seated exercises on the SP fitness lists. And many more exercises can be adapted.
I personally can only do any sort of crunchies seated - I sit on my recliner chair, put back the back, so I'm leaning back, and try to use my stomach and core muscles from there. I've been working on this, off and on, for quite a while - last week, I managed to do 4 sets of 1 x 12 of these crunchies, and I was so thrilled to bits.

Because of an accident to my left knee back on 29 March 2011 which resulted in a near-full-thickness tear in my ACL and a tear in my meniscus, and the subsequent surgery on 24 June which removed a third of the meniscus, I was just diagnosed with extensive arthritis in the same knee. There was no indication of the arthritis prior to the surgery.

The dr. suspects the arthritis runs along the entire end of the femur and was exposed when the portion of the meniscus was removed. Unfortunately, I'm now in more pain than I was before the surgery. I'm in stage 3 of kidney failure and can't take ibuprofen or Tylenol.

I'm told by my knee dr. that I may be able to have a knee replacement in about 7 - 10 years. Uhhh, I'm hoping to speed up that time frame. My GP thinks I could have it as early as 2 - 5 years. Here's hoping.

So, I'm starting a new adventure here! This looks like a very active board, and after going through some of the posts on the tips thread, I know I'm going to learn a lot. I'm hoping to find chair workouts - full body, as well as major body areas, suggestions and tips on coping, and to be with a group of positive people with similar issues.
