achiles tendonitis

A year ago I began experiencing pain in my heel. I went to my doctor who in turned refered me to a foot doctor. The podiatrist told me after viewing my X-rays that I had Achiles tendonitist. I opted to avoid taking a corisone shot because I am still breast feeding for physical therapy. The therapy helped a little but I am still experiencing a great deal of pain. I am a teacher, I have three children, and I am overweight. I desperately need to excercise. What advice can you give me that may enable me with the power to eliminate some of the pain and discomfort, so that I can resume excercising and maintain my very active life.
