If you have the opportunity, try swimming or even walking in a pool. I found that in my first rehab it really helped stretch the muscles, was low impact, and great aerobically. Of course all that assumes you have or can get access to a pool, and know how to swim. Takin' a shot here but it was a good alternative. Also ellipticals are pretty low impact again, assuming you can get access.
Another thought, if you have access to a nutritionist, just to help you get set up eating the right way to drop a few, might be helpful.

My surgery is scheduled for late July. I have had 5 pins in each hip for 43 years. Currently I am working out on a nu-step recumbent bike. Trying to strengthen and lose a little weight and keep BP in a normal range. Any other exercise that could help? Trying not to use ibuprofen or aleave often, but the sudden drops in Temps going into spring leaves my hips aching terribly bad and whether I'll even make it to July. Tips on food, supplements, and exercise would be greatly appreciated.

Every step forward no matter how small or big, takes you closer to your goal! Even if you fall get up and take a step!
