Start with GYN MD: Start by asking your GYN MD surgeon if physical exercise of any type is O.K. or not. Secondly, if you are only 12 days post op you are probably still taking pain medication which is a mood altering drug as well. If the bi polar mood swings become unwieldy or unmanageable, then your GYN MD in collaboration with a Psychiatrist may be able to offer an alternative solution.
