How bad is the injury? Do you have any mobility with it at all?

Well, I was thinking maybe swimming or using rowing machines at the gym for cardio. If you use weights I would stick with dumbbells and seated exercises. I have a back injury that I deal with and I just try to work around it and listen to my body. A physical therapist would be able to provide safe suggestions as well

Swimming is the greatest thing you can do for your body when you have complications! Running in water and some water aerobics will help the transition and still keep you on track!

I hope you feeling better. I am diagnosed with knees OA last year so I have to cut down on exercising esp jogging/running. I have switched to walking and cycling as well as knee strengthening exercises. Swimming is the best but it's not easy to have access to swimming pool for me ^^;
