Can anyone give me advice about exercise. After my PD diagnosis about a year ago I began trying hard to get walking, working up to 30 minutes a day. But I have a bad knee with osteoarthritis. I was booked for a knee replacement but couldn't have it because I had heart issues. I now have a pacemaker and I am told I will soon need valve replacement surgery. And the doctor tells me I can forget about a knee op. I actually know that both my heart and my PD will be better if I exercise. I tried just walking anyway and I could feel a real improvement in my tremor. But I have proved to myself that I can't do the walking. It just results in too much pain.
Does anyone know what I should be doing?
