Be kind to yourself!: After having scalp removed, you need to let your body heal from major surgery, not stress it further! Also, depending if they removed part of your skull, you may need to wear protective head gear, so nothing happens if you fall hard. Speak to your doctor or surgeon about this. I would do simple, easy things like walking versus jogging or biking or jumping around in badminton.
