Welcome! I hope that you can find help for your hands, it can be so hard sometimes to do many things with that kind of pain, but you can push on.

emoticon emoticon You sound like you have your journey mapped out pretty good. Go with the walking and I wouldn"t wait until winter to start emoticon water aerobics. The soothing of the water might just be what you need to help with the pain. GO FOR IT . emoticon emoticon

I WILL SUCCEED BECAUSE I KNOW I CAN DO IT AND I AM MOTIVATED.

Hmm, my pain is in my hands. I had 'thumb base surgery' in Dec. to fix the osteoarthritis. The surgeon said I would be 100% in 3 months. Now at 7 months, I am hurting more than ever. I had my hand re-xrayed and the pins/screws haven't shifted and there is no more arthritits showing up. The doc doesn't know why I have pain. Go figure. I personally would not recommend this surgery....or maybe I should have gotten a second opinion first. But I did lots of research and thought it would allow me to garden, bike ride, etc.....pain free. I just signed up for gentle yoga classes and even those are hard on my hands. I really don't want to do chair yoga. For now I am getting into a daily walking routine and thinking about water aerobics for the winter. I just retired and was looking forward to doing more...not less. But I have a positive attitude, working on losing 15 pounds (which has not even begun happening yet). It is good to hear all of the optimism and motivated people...........
