Ihave chronic pain and I go day to day. I try to do some light walking like in a Mall or a store like grocery. I have fibromalagia, and have nerve damage that has left me incontinent so I use depends. I am just after almost 2 years just able to walk in small amounts. The doctor's also have told me that walking in a pool like at a gym is great because it is easier than regular walking. Hopes this helps.
