A bit of an update.

So I got checked out at the doctor today. There are no blood clots. It looks like I get to keep the leg, so i will have to wait on the chromed out replacement. I will be doing a run of antibiotics for about a week and go back to the doctor. When I go back I think they plan on sending me to a podiatrist for my feet problems. Which of course is more co payments to pay but hey i I do need to see one and should have seen one years ago as people who have seen my feet can attest. The doc did say not to to do anything that will keep me on my feet much or walking or causing impact to my legs which means the workouts I have been doing are out for the most part. Oh well I can still upper body strength training stuff and crunches. I doubt I can stretch that to an hour but hey every little bit helps. Anyone know any cardio exercises that don't involve the legs? Oh well it is only a week.

I am off to do some recording tonight followed by studying up on my a+ stuff to refresh my knowledge. nothing to see here. Move along!

Does your gym have a pool? Swimming can be an excellent cardio workout with stress on the legs.

Um... make that withOUT stress on the legs :-)

Swimming like moosea1 said. Rowing machines can work though there is some leg contact.

hmm the rowing machine might work if i do it right. I am really not certain if I am ready to be seen in a bathing suit, but I will look into it.

I think cycling could probably also be done in a way that was low-impact - go for duration rather than high resistance. The actual stress on your feet themselves is only a tiny fraction of what you'd get with running.

What others have said is correct. Swimming and cycling without tension are both very good low impact cardio exercise. Glad it's getting sorted.
