I don't have energy for much either.. and then there is the pain and all, but I started a kickboxing class back in January and I have to say..the repetitive movements have kept me from getting too stiff. Don't you find that if you sit for too long, that when you get up, you are just too stiff to function? I think movement, gentle movement can keep the flexibility up.. also, the increase in oxygen to my muscles seems to give me a bit more energy later in the day.
If you doctor approves it, I say start with some slow walks. See how you feel, and then maybe you can branch out a bit. My legs sometimes feel like lead but I force myself.
