>Health and Nutrition>Elliptical vs. Incline walking
Have you considered heading out to your gym and giving the elliptical a go. If it hurts, stop and walk on the treadmill. If it doesn't hurt yeah -- you got a workout.

Well, yeah, for now I'm just waiting for my babysitter aka husband to come take over! I'm so paranoid about injuries that I worry about setting myself back if I attempt and fail on the elliptical (which I know isn't the reality). And if incline walking hurts too then I'm out fuel and diesel is not cheap.
Does your gym have a upper-body bike machine ? If so, they offer a great cardio workout that doesn't use your legs...so if elliptical and treadmill don't work...you still get cardio. I used one for months while leg damage healed and it was heck of a hard workout.
