Physical therapy: You may wish to consult a physical therapy specialist. If you do not have access to one, start your activities like walking, may be with the assistance of a relative, gradually increase the length and vigor of your physical activity, as tolerated. Make sure you take at least 70 gm of protein/day. Drink enough water so that your urine is mostly colorless. Wish you good heath!
