Have you tried cutting sugar, or carbs? Ever since I got pregnant with my firstborn, I cope with low blood sugar or hunger pains really badly. I have found that cutting sugar out and carbs back literally take those impulses away. It is the strangest thing.

Are you able to get on a stationary bike? When I tore the tendon running down my ankle / foot my physio consisted of 10 mins on a stationary bike daily. They can normally be picked up for less than 100 used too :)

hi Kara! I broke my leg one year ago and had to have surgery which meant three months of being 100% non-weight bearing on one leg and then very very slowly getting back into even walking and I am still not back to where I was pre-break. I would also wholeheartedly recommend using a stationary bike. Any gym will have them and if you can find one with a reasonable membership price, go for it because being at the gym can help with motivation to go longer and push yourself harder vs. at home. Remember to increase the resistance on the bike so you really get huffing and puffing and sweaty. It is a challenge to burn calories with an injury, but you can do it!
