I'm currently using the Insanity Program. After I complete the Cardio Recovery I am in pain (bad pain, not good pain). My doctor recommended stopping until I recover from my injuries.

What can I do instead? Can I substitute it with another workout video such as Cardio Abs, use as rest day, any suggestions/recommendations?

You could do Cardio abs OR better yet do a day of YOGA!
Let me ask: are you working out on a soft surface? If you are jumping up and down on hard floor, it can cause low back pain and/or knee pain. Also landing "like a cat" is very important. You could use plyo mats to workout on or at least be on a rug. Where is the pain?

cardio abs, is a lot of jumping the first portion, so if jumping and bending is your problem i wouldn't chose that one. You will have determine what is your pain and healing and resting before you re-in jury it.

Cardio Recovery to me is very similar to yoga/pilates. It's the stretching that causes me pain, and the reason I am going to the doctor now. Not having any other issues, other than the Cardio Recovery.

I work out in the basement and it is thickly padded and carpeted.

Then I would do a yoga video if you have one. That is best bet. I actually HATE cardio recovery because its a "fast stretch" and it's not actually helping me. Yoga is my offering.

Sorry, another question... next week is Recovery Week, does Core Cardio and Balance have a lot of stretching?

…after those "pretty" words for your wife...you can add sweet ;-)

No core cardio is some good movement. You should be fine.
