Anything non-contact: The benefits of sports, physical activity and general exercise are overwhelmingly favorable for everyone, and especially transplant recipients. However, it may be worth reviewing with your physician first if you have had any heart problems, have new diabetes or vascular trouble since the transplant. But, these are all also important reasons to exercise if at all possible! clear with your doctor.
