Hello, I'm three and a half weeks post-op from foot surgery. I am feeling a little useless right now and have cabin fever. I want to start exercising again because it makes me feel good mentally and physically. Does anyone have suggestions on what type of exercises i can do that don't involve bending of my toes. I know it sounds strange but please I'm desperate......

You could lay on your back with pillows stacked under your bum to get extra lift and bring your knees down to your chest and put a book on your feet and push straight up and down. Declined scissor kicks also in this position. And not pressure on your foot.

You could do excercises that don't involve using your foot like crunches and sit ups. You can also lift weights while sitting and lay down and do leg lifts. Just do stuff like that.

I agree with last comment. Do some workouts that don't involve your feet. You can also do excrises for your legs without using your legs
