In brief: Recovery

Depending on the location of your surgery, you first need a period of time for healing.
During this initial time, walking is good therapy- not aggressive walking but slow purposeful walking in a relaxed fashion. After a recovery period, cognitive exercises are good to help you with activities of daily living and thought. Have a thorough discussion with your neurosurgeon- he will gladly help.
