I cannot walk because of bone on bone on my left knee, I had a replacement some years ago on right knee worked really well, but I have have too many other things health wise that have to be addressed before a second surgery on left knee, plus, I'm not excited about doing it right now. I don't lift weights because of a back problem. So I've decided to do water aerobics has anyone had luck with losing more weight or just feeling better from such. I looked to see if the question had been asked before but could not find such. thanks for your help!
I dont do water aerobics per se but I do swim and it always feels great. Im run a lot so any time I can get some activity and limit the "pounding", its always a win.

My exercise motto-Further or faster!!!
I did some water aerobics when I was around 300 pounds, but as I started losing weight, I started adding other things. I am bone on bone in both knees. No replacements yet. You need to speak with your orthopedic about your pain control in your left knee.
Once I started losing weight, I worked with a personal trainer to learn how to lift weights. Your bad bad shouldn't be an issue. Also ask for a referral to a physical therapist to help you learn how to strengthen the muscles around your "bad" knee and use the leg more.
I'm still bone on bone in both knees. I should have them replaced, but I have not. I'm 57. I've lost about 150 pounds. I'm ranked 24 among women between the ages 50-59 in my sport (foil fencing) NATIONALLY. I can do it because I've found good pain control through regular visits with my ortho. Talk to your doc and spend the money on a personal trainer.
Keep on losing!
