I am a 31 yr old mother of two. At the beginning of this year I broke my leg and pretty much tore my ankle off. After months in bed I have gained a lot of weight. Need help figuring out what exercises I can do and how long. Doctor has released me but said it will take a year for full recovery. I can walk now but I still don't have full mobility of my ankle.

And feom there you will find a routine that will work for you. Have patience! Thats key and if you are consistent then you will see results. Hope it works out well for you!
