Couldn't hurt: Moderate exercise is rarely harmful for any condition. Listen to your body and don't push your exercising too far, too fast. Consult your doctor for tips and for what to avoid. Best of luck!

Exercise: Regular exercise can be a part of every healthy daily lifestyle, as long as your doctor has not told you to restrict heavy lifting. As long as your doctor has not restricted you, I would think this is alright. Since I don't know how much weight you are using to exercise, I need more information to answer you appropriately. Talk to your doctor, since he/she knows you best.
