I had previously gotten clearance for some light exercise from my orthopedic podiatrist -- upper body workouts ok while sitting, then ok to stand with weights in one month ... that was almost a month ago. As per treadmill, elliptical, and bike, I would have to check with my endocrinologist.

So yesterday I spoke with my endocrinologist, and basically he said -- ok to do upper body workouts, just watch out for back pain.  Still not cleared for elliptical, treadmill, or bike yet, not until 4-6 months after starting Forteo.  I started Forteo February 22, so that would take me to early April.

I'll be conservative.  I just don't want to get injured again.
As I've been going through this recovery, I have been moving and changing my goals ... I was going to run the Allstate 13.1 Marathon in New York City at the end of this month ... then I decided that I would walk it ... now I don't want to do either, because I don't want to get hurt again.

Maybe I can still walk the Long Branch Marathon in May ... but even then, I want to be sure I'll be alright.
