Sorry to hear this, But Curtis is right, listen to your body. I like Andy's idea about the Nikon V1.
Kevin, let me throw another suggestion at you: Even though I don't have to deal with issues like you're struggling with, I have always been looking to get the best weight/performance bang for the buck for my mountain trips. I almost bought a Nex-5n last year, because it can use Nikon lenses with an adapter (and now even FX lenses at FX focal length with the Metabones speedbooster adapter), and it has a sensor that easily matches Nikon's DX offerings. Lots of used 5n's on the market by now
There's also their RX-100 camera for a one-lens high end point and shoot, but the price is higher than you'll be able to sell a D7000 for, which is crazy in my view, but you have different priorities and a lightweight camera with superior image quality (it has a 1 inch sensor, 20MB and f/1.8 lens) like that may just be what you need, and it won't tempt you to connect any heavy old Nikkors like the 5n. If I had to bring one camera and one lens on a hiking trip, this would be the current top pick, with the price being the only thing stopping me.
Wish you the best and realize that I need to be thankful for the genes my parents passed along, as I am 50 years old and still act like I am 30 most of the time.
